    It shouldn't rub if you dont take it off road. If you think you're gonna hit anything major, straighten your wheels. That'll take up most of it. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    I have that same setup. The only time it rubs is when I am off roading. I would say do it. Just trim the fronts back about 1/4 to a 1/2 an inch and you will be fine. This setup is what my freinds call stock. But then I can't afford 20" of lift and 44's. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    I am running 35" BFG's with 2.5 inch of lift. Trimmed about 1 inch off both front and rear of the front fenders. The only time I rub is full lock full stuff!

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    depends on a lot of factors really... but when i had 4"/35s, if my sway bar was disconnected it would rub... and rub pretty hard. If i remember right, i had 1" of body lift as well. Depeneds on how soft ur suspension is, what the real diameter of your tires is etc etc

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    I run a 4" lift and 35's, no trimming and havent come close to hitting, (that i know of) but then again, i don't do hardcore stump jumping or anything.

    You might want to keep an eye on that if you go wheeling. Several people on here have claimed that untill they actually looked closely.

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    I also have a 4" lift and 35" BFG all terrains. I use the truck for moderate off roading and do not rub at all, so I say go for it. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    I have 4" on 35s i hammered the corner of the fenders in a little and they still rub a bit but nothing too major. Only rubs when im off-roading not driving on the street. I wouldnt worry about it. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    I have 4" and 33x12.5's and I can make my tires rub under full compression on 15x10 rims. Just depends on how you wheel it.

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    Mine rubbed as first, but after a short wheeling sesion The tires took care of most of the loose metal. What ever was left fell to the hammer, and i think it was the quickest, easist, and cleanest trim jobs ever.(same set up btw) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: 4\" with 35\'s

    I've got a 4" lift on my 89, although it's maybe closer to 4.5 or so (3" Tuff Country springs, Hill extended shackles, and pinion shims that add maybe 1/8"). ORD 4" shackle flip in the rear and no problem there, however I do rub up front when wheels are turned, my trim has been "relocated" on both sides by the tires. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif No cutting yet and I haven't used the swaybar disconnects either until I do.
