Hello Lance, my 08 rubicon 4dr came with bfg mud terain tires, Stock size. After my first off road trip, I noticed that the tire had rubbed hard enough on the front brake line that it polished the line down to metal. Would this be somthing covered in this recall? If I am reading it correctly, it does not. Thans, GLOCKEM
