The jerk who owned my truck before me decided to get custom rims and tires. Wonderfully, the guy didn't think ahead, and now whenever I hit a bump with a load in the back, the sides of the rear tires rub the wheel well. I can see where they're scraping, and it looks like it's just slightly on the screws holding the plastic cover thing on, but it's annoying as all hell.
I was thinking of just buying sock rims, but considered raising the body (I'm sure I'd fuck up that procedure though)

ANYWAYS, wondering if anyone has an tips on what I should do. Thanks!

many things u can do....
if ur on a budget get a bodylift or
ball joint spacers up front, shackle or add a leaf in the rear
just simply crank your torsions a bit, shackle or add a leaf in the rear

not on a budget
4in lift kit
SAS it...

Sounds like a body lift is the answer, is that a difficult procedure or is it pretty straight forward? Just jack it up and install the stuff?

way more than jack it up and install...
lengthen ur steering, lengthen your shifters,
if you dont know what your doing id suggest u take it in
and have a shop install it rather than mess things up...

if i were you i would try add a rear shackle its like wat 50 bucks or so?
and crank your t-bar a bit...gonna make your ride more bouncy but it may stop the rubbing
but its going to be a lot eaiser and cheaper if you do it this way....

If you want you could try roll-ing the fenders a bit. That would strech it out a little and give it a bit more space. Id say this is the cheapest. Stick a baseball bat or a piece of pipe inside and roll it on the fender.

It seems to me that finding and buying stock rims and new tires wouldn't be the cheapest or easiest route, hence why I came to check out other ideas.

After some research, I'm liking the shackles idea
