Tan One: 3" w/35" tires
White: 5" w/35" tires.
Both on 16x10 powder coated aluminum

Generally, 4" for 35's and 6" for 37's

I don't really have any preference in brands of lift, they all seem to ride the same to me in the front.

Minor rubbing on the plastic inner fender, but nothing that can't be fixed with a dremel or heat gun...

You must not go offroad much? My wheels stick out about 3" past the fenders they are about 1/2" from hitting leafs and rub on the fender while turning and hitting a bump but not always.
