Tire size recommendation is based on not ever touching..also many 37" measure closer to 35" but some like Toyo MT are true to size..

I'd use a 8" kit..here is one we did with 37", little taller 6" front springs with 3" hangers in front

fenders mostly. i havent noticed it on the leafpacks but i'll double check tomorrow

i bought the truck already lifted. so i have no idea whats on it.
but the original owner shaved the bumper down cut the inner fender well (the plastics) and beat in the fenders and they still cut the tires, esp on sharp incline turns.

I'm runnin 37x13.5 toyo open country mt

yeah it sucks. its cut some good chunks into the tires.

my front end does sag a bit,and is desperately in need of an alignment which probably isn't helping.. but it shouldnt make it rub that bad.

as soon as i get some money im probably gonna lift the front end a little.

maybe you could get away with 36s?
