My daughter has 35's on her XJ with 6 1/2 inches of lift. Cut fenders and on a tight turn still rubs a little bit.
I will say this. Check the u-bolts OFTEN and retighten. Hers came loose quite easily and caused rear drive shaft to pop out and a center pin in leaf to sheer. Other than that she goes down the road 70 with no issues. 4.56 gears in case you're wondering

I run 35's on 5" no issue, only rubs the cab side of the fender well bc I'm missing a front bump. I cut out the hump that comes down in the front of the fender well though
