Not so much with my brushguard and roll bar no. My roll bar is outa my truck atm. Cause the paint needs to be redone. But ima afraid it will look like the wheels and tires are to small. I don't wana take a leaf out. I tow with it. What about maybe getn rear shackles cud I drop it sabout an inch with shackles after I do the lift? Then raise it when its time for tires? But wudnt mind the t-bars down aa little bit. No ima go with 32s when they wear out.

Remove the blocks over the axle. Will go down little over a inch. I think ur blocks are 2.5"

Take out the factory ones and replace with smaller aftermarket ones.

if you dont want to take anything off why not just leave it and see how it looks to you. i personally dislike any bodylift but you may like how it looks with 31s.
