Like Huck said you need at least 6" of lift for 37" tires. You will bend fenders with 4-1/2 for sure.
A 6" lift deals with much more then a 4-1/2.

All depends on the wheels you run. Wider wheels with less backspace (push tire out) cause more scrub radius turning, thus need more lift. Of you run 12" wide wheels with -44 offset you need 8 inches. If you run those 37s on OEM wheels you could probably do 4.5" lift and space bumper forward 3/4".
