I have 35's with my camburg 5.5 kit, with fiberglass and a body lift. If you use it right even this setup can still rub when you land unevenly.
so by adding everything together, you have 8.5" of lift...

I leave asphalt all the time, I dive off in mud holes that I bottom out in, I don't have any pix of me in mudholes, but I do have a few that proves I go offroad.





And in this pic you can see all the mud on my truck.

Exactly. You have the BL on top of it. And you're not driving it right then.

I wouldn't say he's "not driving it right", I would say he is just offloading a bit different, cuz if you put major flex on it, or jump the truck, I could see the tires rubbing then. But in Louisiana, we have flat ground. And lots of it :/

I have a 95 4x4 6" suspension, 3" body lift and 35s. It rubs wery slightly in sharp turns and rubs in the rear when flexed and on the front fenders.... a 2wd with a 5.5 inch and a 3" BL will rub, maybe not on the street, but over a bump or hitting an actual mud hole (not a flat wet grass field, an actual mud hole) Im willing to bet it will.

According to Scott, flexing won't make it rub. Now jumping it and coming down flat like on the dunes, yeah. Then it'll rub.
