A 4" lift with a 1" BL is perfect to run 35's. A straight 4" lift may rub a little depending on the flares.

2000 Sahara, 3.5" Rubicon Express Lift, 1" spring spacer & 1" Body Lift, 33" or 35" BFG Mud tires, Front & Rear ARB, Rancho 9000 shocks, UCF Ultra High Belly Up, Savvy gas tank skid.

It's a good idea to upgrade to tube fenders. More clearance for tires and flex.

Do it. Plenty of room. You may have to add a little bumpstop. Those Bushwackers hang down lower than stock flares too. You could trim some off the edge if your tires don't tuck inside them.
I'm running 3" springs, 1.25"BL, and 35's.

With stock fenders and flares

MCE fenders and trimmed stock rear flares
2004 TJ. 3" Savvy/Currie, 1.25" BL, Locked on 35's.

why don't you make the determination yourself? pull the springs out, cycle the axles to full bump & full flex...check the clearances to see if you can fit the larger tires.

Thats the right way to do it anyway.
