    If I put a 4 inch lift on my truck, can I stuff 35s under there without cutting my fenders? I read in Four Wheeler mag that it requires slight trimming... but I'd rather not cut anything.

    you may have to trim just the back corner of the fender when at full lock.

    i have very little back spacing on 10" wide wheels and i had to trim just a bit off the back bottom corner.

    I have this combo and it only hits at full lock when going over a bump/flexing. It still doesn;t hit badly enough to worry about it. I will cut an inch or 2 when I get around to it.

    I have a 4" lift + ORD zero rate for extra 1". although it hasn't rubbed yet, I have flexed it out completely to make sure.

    I ran this for a year or so and same thing, only at full lock and on a slight grade of some sort. Rubbed enough to rip the molding off of the edge but no biggey. I wanted it off anyways.

    if u run 8" rims instead of 10" with the same backspacing, 4" or so, it will clear alot easier.

    I have 35s on mine with only a 2" add-a-leaf in the front and a 2.5" ORD flip in the rear. It rubs occassionally but not bad at all. You should be fine, but that all depends on the actuall size of your tire and the wheel backspacing/width. I have 10" wide that are damn near centerline, my tire measures to be 34 and 3/4 so it's almost a true 35.

    I run 35" MTR's (33.5" true height) with 4" or slightly more front lift. I run 15x8" rims with 4" BS and I rub the sh*t out of my inner fenders when wheeling and I had to cut alot to get the tires to clear the fender lips.

    with my blazer(6" lift, stock shackles, 15x10 rockcrawlers 3-4" back spacing, 35x12.50 marshal power guards, no sway bar) I rubed the back of the fenders pretty good. had to cut 2" off and still was pretty close looking.

    Yes you should be able to.

    I run 35X14's on 3"bs. 10" wide rims

    About 2" off the back of the front fender and a little beating of the front to roll the sharp edges away from the tire.

    This is on a stock truck , no lift.

    Just try them out , if no lift and trim fits , 4" lift without trim may :grin:

    Each rig is different with what you can get away with :dunno:

    I'm running BFG AT 35's with 5" of lift and have had no problems at all. If you need another inch, get a set of zero rates, that's what I did in the rear and they work great.
