Then a good set of rear leafspring shackles with at least 1 1/2" of lift. I did the cuts on my front fenders to clear the width of my 8 x 15 with 3 3/4" back space wheels. They rubbed the back of the fender opening at full turn.All I did was match the cuts on my stock ZR5 flares and pop revet them like the fender and put them back on, walla! no more rub. But, even with stock diameter tires they hit the top in hard bottom out of suspension.

It is likely that you will also have scars where the flares rub the paint. That is going to be hard to fix or cover.
Some body work and matching paint would be ideal.
There might not be an inexpensive fix that is perfect.
I have wanted to see if the late ninties Ford F-150 Bushwacker flares might work.

If your plan is to hack up that high and wide, plan on lots of fab and body work, or a really good way to cover it all up. Then you must consider the gross difference at the front.
I think if you want to go that far the fiberglass prerunner fenders would be the best choice. Altering the glass bedsides to fit would be easier than trying to fix a big cut job there.
That is how I took it but, I have been known to be wrong more times than right.blackZR5 wrote:.........................so you're saying the best bet would be to follow the skidz cuts, and just fill in the holes on the rear with some kind of filler and paint over that?
Check out the bump stop thread. Grab a set of fullsize bumpstops for the front. That way you can really bounce that truck without rubbing the top of the fender well.jflatley wrote:...I think that it will be nice to go on the beach and not have the passengers ask what that rubbing sound is.
