Icon Lift 4.5" can I run 37's 2013 f250

I just got my first Ford Super Duty 2013 F 250 4x4 Crew Cab red w black interior. I have always wanted a lifted super duty. I really don't want to go 6 plus inches and after reading and talking to the guys at Icon I am leaning towards the 4.5 inch lift with the 4 link kit. But it looks so much better with 37's. I am going to be using the truck for a daily driver and towing my tow hauler so do want any rubbing. Has anyone run 37's successfully with this lift ? and if so guide me how to do it. I am new to this board and appreciate everyone's time and input.

Pictures and specs are always helpful

I don't personally have that setup but there are a lot of guys running carli, pure, pmf and icon 4.5" with 37". You just can't get crazy with wheel offset, I'd stay with a 5" backspacing on the wheel.

as long as you stay with a 20x9 wheel with 0 offset or a + offset you will be fine.

I just tried it with a 9.5" with 4.5" BS and it rubbed like hell on my BDS 4". I just gave in and bought a BDS 6" 4 link and it still hits the bumper bracket. Im about to do a spacer kit for the bumper.

You can run 37's with a 4.5" lift if you stick with an 8.5-9" wide wheel with a 5.5" backspace you will be good up front. In the rear big 37's like Toyo's can still contact the back of the wheel well when the suspension compresses. If you go with the full leafs from Carli that will move the axle forward slightly. Also the 4.5" Pure kits have blocks that can move the axle forward a bit as well.

Your issue is the wheel and not the tire. A 9.5" wide wheel with 4.5" of backspace will stick out 1.25" more than a 9" wide wheel with 5.5" of backspace. That 1.25" might as well be a mile when trying to run 37's on these trucks.
