Hey!
This is Belle… she’s sweet!
I’m running 245/65R17 - 1 1/2” Spacers. She rubs a bit in the front, not bad. I may do a tiny grind mod at some point. I just picked up a new Winch, so I’ll be working on that mod. I’m making it front/rear removable.

Can't wait to see your set up; I've been trying to figure it out. Been torn between a "super winch" or do a rear hitch mounted winch ??‍♂

Nice setup! What wheels do you have, I'm surprised that your 245's rub. From what I've read all over 245/65r17's are the biggest tire that won't rub, without a lift, especially on a Badlands. I had the dealer install that size on my Big Bend (I pick up this weekend).

It’s the 1 1/2” Spacers that caused the rub. It was fine before I installed those. It’s a minimal rub. I’m going to give her a bit of a workout this weekend, before I grind on her, to see if there are anymore spots. Good luck on Big Bend!

Picked her up yesterday. BS Big Bend. Dealer replaced stock tires with Falken Wildpeak A/T3W 245/65r17's, no lift. I can't really hear road noise but can feel there are more aggressive tires on her. Four and half hour drive home, drove great. Looking forward to some trail rides, but almost afraid to get her dirty. Waiting for her big brother to arrive now.

Got it at Granger! Thanks to Chip, Jay, Javan and the crew for making it a smooth transaction!
