4.5 Lift with Flat Flares and 35?

Curious if anyone has ran 35s with 4.5 lift and used the bushwhacker flat flares, if those flares and what material gets removed to use them was enough to clear them fine. thanks,

For 35s I trimmed roughly along the stock flare outer edge on 4" lift height, rear cut 'n fold, and didn't have any rubbing issues. IIRC around 3" bumpstopping. Looking at the BW flat fender flare installation instructions and what people have posted on the interweb, I'd say you've got a pretty good chance of succeeding with the setup you're thinking of.

Don't count on me though, I'm judging this by only looking at things through my screen
