    You will be cutting it close with 36's. You will have to trim some, and when you dicide to offroad it you will have to trim more.

    if 39.5's can be fit with 4''s then you can fit 36's

    As a pavement pounder, you should be fine (as a general rule). Offroad, you will be limited by your fenders most likely. Each lift is different (even the same brand), but you will probably have some fender contact.

    You're gonna have to trim a fair amount. I'm running 44's with 8".
