i had a 91 F-150 w/ a 4" suspension and 3" body that i had 35's under, and it'd rub wheeling it hard... hitting the rolling bumps at the dunes would scrub the inner fenders when going straight.

i had blocks in the rear and they were fine.

I have a 4" tough country in my 97 250hd. I like it, with the exception of the front driveshaft rubs once and while on the crossmember. But it clears 35's no problem.
