    6" w/ 37's..... it rubbed driving over a curb. it cant be done without trimming.

    edit: rubbed isnt the best term to describe it...... more like smashed the fender. if you dont plan on leaving pavement..... it works just fine.

    6" springs. my 35's rubbed! 37's are that much worse. I'd say you need a fair amount of fender trimming if you want to flex it out.

    If your just driving to the mall you might be okay.
    Might rub when crawling the double stacked curbs though.

    As you can tell I had to trim the front fenders. I am going to do the rear in a few mins.

    I think that my 9 and 35 combo looks okay. I wanted 37's and I am glad that I didn't get them because my fenders would have really been mangled. I was worried that it would look funny, but it is not bad.

    i sugest you look carefully at some of the trimed fenders and choose a style that you like or get bushwacker cutout flares because i have even rubbed with 33's and a 6" lift
