Back Tires Rubbing

Not entirely sure where they rub in the rear, but when I'm driving and there's a sudden bump there's a rub in the back. Also if there's like 4 people in the back it rubs. Jeeps super heavy I know with the steel I added.

I'm running 35" red grabber tires on 2011 jeep wrangler 4 door unlm.

Don't have any pics on my comp other than these two so you can get an idea. There's obviously enough space, but not sure how to fix without removing stuff? Can't add a lift as I barely fit in the garage now. I was looking up wheel spacers (yeah I know what everyone says).





Could it be this that I have yet to cut off? Will probably do this week.

Can you jack it up & see where it's rubbing?
Either trim as needed, or stiffer springs...

you are rubbing on the inner plastic of the bushwackers. you can add taller bumpstops but you are already limited on travel so you wont have much or trim the plastic and I for sure would trim the pinch seam. it wont hurt anything just makes noise. If you put your jeep on a ramp to flex it out you can see where it is rubbing. your rig actually looks fairly light as far as armor goes.

Oh wow mines not that close at all.

Just took this:



When I jack it up, what do I look for exactly? How do I know it's rubbing? Never done this before.

Cut the pinch seam on the front of the wheel well that you took a picture of. That is a good place to start.

You need to look right after it happens. Drive down a dusty road. Go to a parking lot with speed bumps. Load 6 big guys... drive... listen... stop.... LOOK !!
