Call Clayton and ask about the lift height they will help you out

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

Yeah when I'm ready to buy I will! But I'm also gonna bump up to ~5.5" so shouldn't be an issue hopefully. Plus I've got bumps tops to stop the upper from hitting floor if needed.

Hmmm so according to the interwebz, a 35x12.5x15 pit bull rocker is 81lbs, a 35x12.5x15 wrangler mtrk is 67lbs. So if I run pit bulls with aluminum rims its no worse than mtrk on steelies. Hmmm... something to take into consideration. And an aluminum wheel will hold up better over steelies.

aluminum + MTRk, lighter overall.

remember rotating mass affects gas mileage, braking power, steering, and wear on wheel bearings and axle shafts.
