Your right on the money with that statement. AEV recommends the 285/70R17 as the tire size for the 4" lift. They told me the 265's would look too small on the lift. However, 265's would provide more clearance in the front fenders. So I too am looking to add 1-2" onto the 4" Superlift for more clearance in the front. A friend who does extreme lifts on trucks (his is a 23" lift - not for every day driving) looked at the 4" lift on my Commander and did some articulations on some blocks to show me the lack of wheel clearance for front fenders and is going to first add 1" steel plates to see how that does and then may go to 2". His comment was, "it looks great as it is and would be fine for driving to the mall if all you wanted was show", but he knows I want to take it off road for some dirty fun and recommends 1-2" more for propper clearance. I already hacked the inside fenders for some room but he said dont cut more, just go higher.
Keep me posted on your endevors. Looks like you and your son had a blast. My 6 yr old son and 3yr daughter love to go Jeeping too!
