Dude, tire rub?

06 Rubicon, 2"bb, 1" bl, STOCK tires and wheels. Tire rub up front? Are there others out there who have had this experience?

I will be replacing the lift with a 4" complete suspension lift and leaving the 1" bl. In the mean time, is this rub an indication of something bad about to happen or already happened? Nothing appears to be broken.

How bad is it rubbing?

Something is WRONG. Spell out exactly what tires/wheels you have now.

There is no reason for a Rubi to rub tires stock, let alone with a lift (unless the lift put on has shorter springs/shocks).

Does it rub offroad or onroad or both?

pics are your friend. a wise man said "A picture is worth 1,000 words". and I think he's correct, I'm much too lazy to read 1,000 words when I pic or 2 will get the job done.

It's probably the swaybar! Not centered or not with the proper angle up. Typical issues with a BB.

This was my guess, or the fact of a stock track bar. If the swaybar is the case its an easy and cheap fix
