35's and 4.5" lift - how to trim rear well?

I've got a 4.5" Rubicon Express suspension lift and 35" tires on my 1980 CJ-7. Anybody trimmed the rear well for this configuration? Looking for photos of how much trimming you had to do. Mine rubs pretty bad when I've got a load in the back and I'm considering trimming or blocks to limit travel.

You might have better luck in the CJ section with this.

I cut my CJ when I went to 36s but don't know that I have any pics of that. Will post em up if I find something.
4" shoe sucking mud, uphill, 2wd, no slippage on Cooper AT3? Ya, sure! NOT!
