Mine is the exact same set up but wheels are stock color and truck is deep cherry. My stock tires rub a lot ( I'm dropped the same) you cut out liners or fender lips?

I'm not on the stock rubber ... running 285/50-20's so very little rub so far. It rubs only when I hit big bumps,potholes, etc.
Top of the tires rubs the inner liner... a little cut here and there and all is good.

Seeing how your stock wheel has a +19 offset and I am looking at a set of wheels that are +6 offset, is there room to move the wheel in 13mm? Where in the wheel-well does your actually rub?

I like it, I would personally run a little more sidewall on the back than the front to fill the wheel well and get a 'fats and skinnys' look

The gray and black is the best color combo going at the moment, IMO (but I might be a little biased)...
Have to agree on the gray/black combo. Good looking trucks. How is the ride with the cut coils? Haven't rode on cut springs since my first car in high school.

That might work .The fenderwells are plenty big in these trucks. I have heard of a few however , that are running 22's,
lowered that have rubbed the sway bar at full lock. Best bet would be to mount one up and measure if possible.

I am only rubbing when the suspension fully compresses. BIG bumps, holes , etc.
Two ways this can be fixed. Run a larger bumpstop and limit travel upwards OR
simply remove a small amount of the plastic inner fender liner. Latter of the two
will work for me.

I like your thinking!! I might go this route once I wear these tires out
