    4 inches they will clear, add an inch or two body lift and they shouldnt rub at all

    Theres No Replacement for Cubic Inches!

    I just put a 4" on front and 6" on the rear and found that my 35" Claws will still rub at max articulation. For regular street and mild off-road I won't have any problems. I'm planning for a 2" body next.

    ahhh well I have 33" with 4" front & 5 1/2"rear suspension lift and a 3" body lift and (before the fenderwells were bent) I could get thoes 33s to hit the front of the rear fenderwells. So I just bent them in a little more with a sledge hammer now no more rubbing[​IMG]... It realy depends on the trails you take yer rig on.
