30" A lift is not required; however, a small amount of lift will help with axle articulation.

31" A lift is not required for street use; however, 1-2" of lift is recommended for trail use to allow full axle articulation.

32" 3" of total lift is recommended, but 4" of lift would provide the best axle articulation with no tire rubbing.

33" 3-4" of suspension lift, or a spring over conversion (SOA) is recommended. A small amount of body lift may be used to increase tire clearance but isn't required.

34" A 4" suspension lift (or SOA) is highly recommended. Some rubbing will occur. Some fender trimming or a body lift may be necessary to increase clearance.

35" A 4" suspension lift (or SOA) is required. Fender trimming or a body lift may be necessary to increase clearance.

36" A 4" suspension lift (or SOA) combined with a 2-3" body lift is necessary. Fender trimming may be required as well depending on wheel offset and tire width.

37" A 4" suspension lift (or SOA) combined with a 2-3" body lift is necessary. Major fender trimming is required as well depending on wheel offset and tire width.

38" A 4" suspension lift (or SOA) combined with a 2-3" body lift is necessary. Major fender trimming is required as well depending on wheel offset and tire width.

39" A 4" suspension lift (or SOA) combined with a 2-3" body lift is absolutely necessary. Major fender trimming is required as well depending on wheel offset and tire width. Custom arched springs are likely the best option to gain the necessary clearance.

40" A 4" suspension lift (or SOA) combined with a 2-3" body lift is absolutely necessary. Major fender trimming is required as well depending on wheel offset and tire width. Custom arched springs are likely the best option to gain the necessary clearance.

Personal Experience

4.5" Springs with 1/2" Shackles. 33" Tires Very minor rubbing at absolute full stuff. Not even enough to worry about though.

Stock, flat fendered front, no flares on rear-31's with some rubbing on front fenders.

1.5-2" shackle lift eliminates the rubbing, but gives you goofy looking shackles that get in the way on the trail

4" suspension lift fits the 31s with enough room for a small village between tires and body

4" suspension lift, 1in shackles in the rear-minor rub during full stuff on front tires and fenders (fenders are cut btw), and some rub in the back, need to trim out the back of the wheel well to clear. Also have a heavy tire carrier on the back, which is why i have the lift shackle

Rollin on 33" tires with about 4" lift. Had to put 1.25" spacers on my rims to get clearance on turning. Also had a little rubbing on the inner fender wall of the rear tires when I was at full suspension travel without spacers. Will update when I try with the new spacers.

4" susp lift, 1" body lift, 33's but have narrow-tracs and get some rub when turning and as TipTopCJ5 stated above, I also get a little rub on the rear inner fender wells at full stuff, switching to later wide-tracs but may try the spacers in the mean time.
