I think you are going to have a lot of fender rub.
Not planning any challenging off road trails I hope, the rears look one good flex away from ripping off the plastic fender trim

How much lift on the truck?

I have 32x10.50’s with 2” of strut lift + 3” of body lift and when flexed on a challenging rut filled trail I’ll rub slightly with the front wheels turned close to lock.

Just 3 in btf strut spacers, the reason the rear is so low in the pics is because i was hauling my old tires and rims on a hitch haul. It looks good as hell and yeah i trimmed a little bit here and there but it’s definitely worth it. I have always loved oversized tires and I couldn’t stick with the 265/75/16 recommendations and 285/75/16s werent enough to satisfy me😂

Looks good, but I agree it looks like Rub City.
