With 6" lifts Superlift =37x13.5, Fabtech =35x13.5, Rize =37's, Pro Comp =35x12.5. I understand that back spacing on your wheel can make a difference, but if 37" will fit under every 6" lift why wouldn't that company tell people that? Im sure Fabtech has lost sales to superlift or Rize because people want 37's and they say it will not fit on their lift. Isnt a 6" lift a 6" lift? What gives?
Most companies measure from the hub height to the fender (front wheels). Typically a 6" lift is... 6" of lift.
Depending on the configuration of the front link (ours is a radius arm), the tires may hit the front bumper a little, a lot, or not at all with 37" tires. So it's not so much of a height issue as it is a clearance issue with the bumper. Most 6" lifts could probably fit 39"+ if you trim the bumper.
