38" tires on a 6" lift?

Is any one out there able to run 38s on a 6 inch lift. Just want to know since I really want to not have the 8" but also dont want to cut out my fenders!

That will not fit without cutting and you'll need back spacers not to rub on the leafs.

Yup, when turning the tire will rub into the back of the inner fender wall... cutting it will buy you the space to run 38's on a 6"...
