I have 2.5 on the front and 4 on the back. Works pretty well. Tires will hit the frame if you turn either way 100% but I don't ever recall hitting the fender flares.

I have the 2.5" Ready Lift leveling kit running 37x12.5r18 on fuel octanes. Doesn't rub at all. Offset and backspacing for the rims are off the readylift web site.

I just put a level kit on at it fits fine. I did add a 1" block in the back cuz I didnt like the way it looked but no rubbing the block was for just looks.

The wheels you choose will be the biggest factor in what size lift you can pull 37's off with. Leveling kits and 37's can definitely work. Choose your wheels wisely though.

I agree, Make sure it is a high offset. They will fit the best that way.

I have the Icon 2.5" leveling kit and Deavers in the rear to make it sit a little higher in the rear. I run stock 20s and 37" Toyos. They rub just a little at full lock. No problems at all. Looks great too!
