4.5" Rubicon Express Super-Flex w/ 33x12.5 BFG MT's - I rubbed until I trimmed the fenders a little bit. Can't post pics from my office computer tho.

That seems to be a very common combination for the XJ. Like stated above you will need to trim the fenders if you plan on wheeling it at all.

I have a 91 Laredo that I put a 4.5" Rough Country lift on and was able to fit 33 on without trimming. However, whenever I filled the Jeep full with stuff, like camping gear, and would bomb over a bump, the rear tires would rub on the rear quarters.

Basically, you could ge by fine, but trimming would be needed, which is super easy...
