She rubs on full turn and I'll have to trim about 2 inches from the fronts of each rear flare or else I'm afraid they will get torn off. Really only gives me grief at full turn though during city driving. I've read somewhere about adjusting "bump stops"? I've got to look into that some more. I'm very happy I stuck with my gut and got the 35's!

there is a bump bolt on each swivel housing. Loosen the back nut and adjust side to side, you will loose turning radius but you new that when you put the 35's on...

Terrafirma Wheel spacers solved all my problems. I can crank it 100% each direction. Also, I trimmed the flares a little because they did rub bad.

Did you put spacers on the rear wheels too? You don't need them.

Are you still running 3.54's in the 3rds?

You can get longer bumpstops or a spacer for you original ones.

Are those Cooper STT's?

Truck looks great!

Thanks for the compliments! Yes, running spacers on the rear. Yes, stock gearing (sucks). And yes, those are the new Cooper STT Pro's. Check out this pick I took with the fastback top on!
