    OK, I just lifted my 01 x sport with war-153, lift kit for the sprot trac, i dont remember the part num off hand. I think it 70023, but dont hold me to that. I also did a TT which put the bottom of my front wheel wells at 35", it was right about a 1.5" lift. I then slapped on a set of DC-1 15x8 with BF Goodrich Mud Terrains with 33x12.5x15. OK here comes the but......when turn, left or right, the tire is rubbing against the factory ground effect behind the wheel well, to the point it torn the ground effect off the drivers side turning innagural test drive. Now ive seen plenty of posts here by members with the same truck and same set up and have had no probs. Anyone have any ideas why I do?:confused:

    yes......my idea is that every truck is different, just trim the plastic 'ground effects' where the tire rubs it and then you'll be fine...it's very common
