    should... I have like 5 inches of clearance between my 31s and my fenders with a 4 inch lift... you should be good to go.

    No/maybe. I ran 32's and 2" of lift and rubbed. They were 32x11.5x15" BFG AT's that measured 31" actual height. I also did not run a swaybar though.

    Stock wheels? Tire width? Suspension? All matter as to whether 33's will fit with no rubbing.

    I've got 33's with no lift/no trimming and I don't EVER rub.

    I run 33's (actually 285/75R16 on 16 x 8 rims) with no lift and no rubbing. Just had to bend back the bottom back corner on the fender lip a little bit with the 5 lb sledge. But not enough that you can tell I did it.

    I used to have 2" on my truck with 33's (BFG AT's on 10wides) and it rubbed if u flexed it pretty good I got 4" now and that defiantly solved the rubbing problem. A friend of mine used to run no lift and 33's and his wouldent rub either but thats because his spring would bottom out on the bump stops before they could rub :D
