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!
