OK, I went with a 6" lift so I wouldn't have to cut my fenders and wouldn't rub while wheeling. Well, last night I was going through a dry creek bed and my right front tire hit the back part of the fender well so hard it stopped my truck. I was in sand, so my right tire immediately digs in and buries itself. I have a Hi-Lift, so I got the truck out in about fifteen minutes or so, but I shouldn't have rubbed at all, right? I have never heard of a tire rubbing so bad it stopped the truck. My fenders must be angle iron or something. Well, I hit another (way more mild) creek bed and the same thing happened. This time the ground was solid so all I had to do was free the tire and I was off. The area where we were wheeling is so mellow I don't even need four wheel drive to get around, so I didn't think it would be any big deal. I was in the exact same place last week, and I didn't rub, nor did I get stuck. The creek bed I crossed the second time I went right through last week, no problemo. Truck set up the exact same way. Why would I rub now, but not then? The springs are loosening up a little (which is actually a good thing, and expected), so I have considered that as part of the problem, but I am flumoxed. I wouldn't think that the difference would be so huge between brand new and ten days old. Any ideas about what the problem is? The truck is going in for my 14-bolt on Thursday, so if it is a mechanical shortcoming I can have it taken care of then. Thanks in advance, and thank God for Hi-Lift jacks!!!! I don't have a front driveline in, so I am thinking that could be why I am rubbing. Is that correct?
