    I just did this, 4" lift and 36"TSL's. No rubbing on the road, but it wont take much off road to rub

    I have a 4" and 35s and they don't rub on the road or when I'm doing something mild off road, so I thought I was okay. I wasn't. My tires got actually cut by my fenders. I would suggest that if you venture onto anything even close to off-road, you either cut your fenders or get a 2" body lift.

    A little bit of it depends on your lift - certain 4" kits are more like 3 or 3½" lifts. But you should be able to get around town just fine.
