I cant give you an extact ## but i will tell you, your gonna rub with 37s a lot.
I got 6" lift and rub on the front inner fender well and bumper at full turn. however i just cut some of the inner fender well and put some longer bolts and washers to space my bumper out alittle further away.

You will gain approximately 4.5" lift from the system plus roughly 2" from the 37s for a total of 6.5" over stock. However not all 4.5" systems are created equally. We have found that the Icon systems are slightly taller than most. If you allow yourself 7" over stock you should be safe. Here are a couple of examples of that combination:

Icon 4.5" on 37" Kumhos MTs


Icon 4.5" on 37" Toyo MTs


We have done a number of trucks with this combination with no rubbing issues. There are however a few tricks to configuring the proper set-up.
