a new sye/drive shaft, extended brake lines, if youre putting on bigger tires prob new brakes. It all depends if youre just lifting it or adding in tires too.

If you don't already have an SYE/CV Shaft kit you will need one after lifting that much due to the drive shaft angle being too steep for the stock setup. If you move at all without binding you will have a ton of vibrations. Generally you need that after the 3-4" point if you don't have a motor mount lift or transfer case drop installed.

If you're not going for new tires why are you lifting it? Your ground clearance at the diffs will be the same.

What back spacing do your wheels have? I have a 4" lift and 33" tires but no rubbing problems. Maybe it's your back spacing. There has been numerous posts on this forum concerning BS.

4" is plenty of height for 33" tires, your tires are rubbing elsewhere. Are your tires 33x12.50 or 33x10.50? Exactly what wheels do you have them mounted on? Do you know the backspacing of the wheels? Your tires might simply be rubbing on the suspension or perhaps you don't have enough bump stop height.
