Ain't gonna happen.

I added a 1" body lift and still wasn't gonna happen so I went with 36's and cut a lot more. The problem with springing under a larger axle is the diameter takes away from the advertised lift height. You're just going to chase your tail with your goals. Trust me, that's my jeep and I've been down this road. Not to me took the front axle uhsplode when it even sees 38's.

I went with BDS 004500 springs and larger shackles not to mention the metalcloak fenders to barely clear the tires I have up front. Its gonna be a long hard road to get these things to function in tandem. I would suggest you consider going SOA and poking through profiles to get a little more info as to what's gonna work and what isn't.

We are all here to help.
I clear 37s with my 4 inch sua with out a problem and do so with 4 inches of lift, that and I wheel the snot out of it! just saying its do able IMO!

But the money you spent on your metalcloak fenders negates the need for the extra lift. Hence why I was trying to find another combination of lift and clearance to accommodate the tires.

'Cloaks and a 4" lift will be about the same/only slightly more $$$ as a massive 6" set up not to mention it will ride/handle better. Well the fronts anyways, which is all that really matters. Any cutting/flare combination will work in the back. Or flareless and some sort of comp cut

And Zte, not all of us can be as cool as you.

Cheers
