    Last night I was goiung through a ditch and my tires rubbed real bad. Got out and checked where they usually rub - at the rear of the front fender - and it was fine. a few hours later I looked at the front of that fender and it was all dented in. Pulled it out a little with my hands, but it still looks like crap. This happen to anyone else?

    I have a 89 with no lift running 33s and except for cutting off a little of the rear front. I have had no rubbing anywhere.
    My rims have 3 1/2" of back spacing I think that is why I can get away without a lift. I have had the suspention wound pretty tight with no probs.

    I had that happen on mine. I ripped the bottom of the wheel well trim off and mashed the fender in some. I fixed it with a sawzall. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
