You should have no problem running 37"s with a 4" lift but keep in mind that with such large tire your speedo will be off somewhat and your def gonna wear out your suspension and put excess wear on your tie rods, ball joints, tranny.. etc You can't just throw huge tires on a stock driveline without it wearing prematurely!!

Put some info in your sig. I have a 6 inch on my 2002 and it would be hard for me to run 37s without trimming my bumper. But I have a friend with a v10 and he runs 37s with a 4 inch lift. I think it all depends on the wheel. What are you running now?

well... all depends on the offset of your wheel.. you could prob squeez 37's on a 4" lift but its going to rub... how wide is the wheel your going to put on it?

I had 35x12.50s on with a leveling kit and i rubbed like crazy. get out the tape measure and see how much room you have all around. I would always go on the small side of what you think you can do so you dont ever rub. I know now if im turning and go through a ditch itll rub the bumper. Do you know what backspacing you have? and about the oil. I always get mine serviced at the dealer so im not sure what they put. I put 15-40 in all of my diesel tractors and diesel equipment. I would think you would be ok to run that.
