But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

whats does your drop consist of? because if you have a flip kit out back need to put some lift shackles.. Where you rubbing at? Maybe get some smaller tires those look pretty big 275/35/24 would be better...

Lift shackles are really the only way to do it without taking off the flip kit.
If you took off the flip kit you could put lowering shackles on it, but I'd do it the other way

go under and look what you have in the rear. If its a flip you can get lift shackles if its a shackle and hanger kit you could use a small block

Where are you rubbing at? With my 3/4 drop and 285/40/23 tires I rubbed on big dips up front. I stepped down to 285/35/23 tires and don't rub at all.

if you knew somebody who could roll fenders, that would be prime choice. Your back tires are poking out like mad.
