    ...and what at difference! Finally looks like a proper 4x4. Added 255/55R-18 Nitto Ridge Grappler tires on 18x8 Black Rhino Trabuco wheels in black. Thanks to the other member who have posted this size and these wheels. Stock Trailhawk lift. Of course I have spacers and did the pinch mod. These tires are great, and live up to their quite reviews. Wheel were only a few pounds heavier than stock... lost about 2 MPG but I'm still averaging 20 combined. My little cub now has some attitude!

    So do you have a slight rub still? I have the exact set up in regards to size and I only get a slight rubbing when I go reverse on a full lock.

    No, I cut the seems way back and made sure I screwed the plastic wheel well liner to an "L bracket the I attached underneath. This pulled it far in... no heating. I didn't want any rubbing!

    Didn't see your Black Rhino Wheel style when I was shopping... They are nice wheels for the Renegade... too bad they made so little of every style! I contacted TSW Wheels to see if they planned on more runs.. but they didn't have an answer. There were only a few left in the Trabuco style... so I ordered right away!

    Your setup looks great! Now I’m contemplating if I should do the Avid 1.5” lift. More for looks than anything else.
