    I can tell that it did hit. I bought this truck lifted already, so I'm not sure how they fixed it. I would figure they used a big pry bar to bend the exhaust out of the way. Hope this is helpful my friend!

    I think a stock 9.50 /16.5 is close to a 32" tire. Try checking a tire calculator to be sure, can help. I know I preach AutoFab, but you will get performance and reliability form them. These guys have a nice 3" econo lift, perfect for 33". Also, look up chasetruck, he may have some more insight. If you got a good alighnment shop near you, you could try to find a slightly longer coil to achieve 1-2" of lift to get those tires in there without eating up you fenders when you hit a large bump. I would recomend anything after a 3" lift you go to longer radius arms to correct caster. After 3" of lift, your beams will be pulled back pretty far and create some gnarly bump steer. Good luck and keep us up to date!

    kalve, I changed out the I-beams, radius arms, coils, and steering drag link. I know that has a 3" econo lift that sounds like it would fit the description you gave. It will make a great diffrence in driving!

    Sorry for the late delay in getting back to you! This next season I will use the truck stock expect for electronics. Otherwise I will do a long travel on it late next year.
