Default New Mexico Desert Build

Hello all.new guy here. Just picked up a 99 blazer for $1300 about 3 weeks ago. 4x4, power everything and real clean. Here is a pic. Read as many threads as I could on here. First thing I did was a shackle lift and tb 1.5. Next is rims and tires. I'll keep y'all posted.

Default Lift

Lift is complete. 1.5 tb and 2 in shackle lift. Black rims ordered off eBay and on the way. Searching for used 31s on cl but no luck yet. Tomorrow I'm pulling the vinyl sticker off the bottom and going to plasti dip the grille

Got my 31s on my new 15x8s and Im still getting alot of rub in the front. I did the 1.5 tb and 2 in lift in the back. Im looking for suggestions on getting another inch out of the front before I start cutting on the fenders themselves.

Where is it rubbing? Ive got 1.5 tb lift in the front and 2in shackels in the back, 31 BF Goodrich AT's on stock wheels and front wheels only rub at full turn on the frame a slight bit.. What backspacing are your new wheels?
