I have a 4 inch suspension, 2" body, 1 inch shackle and have 35'sx12.5. Haven't had any problems yet, but they will probably rub when compressed heavily. What is stock backspacing? A tire that wide needs to be farther out than stock I would think.

I have about 1/4" less lift than you and run 35x12.5's comfortably. Swampers tend to run true to size, so the 35's will probably be your limit. 37's would technically fit, but you'd have very little room for travel (and assuming you still have stock axles you'd really be pushing it strength-wise).

I would consider a 3 something back space...those wide boggers will play hell on your springs when turning...they have massive side lugs...
