mine is a 6 1/2" lift with 35 14.50 i had to trim the valance under the bumper. pretty sure 37's would not fit. a 35 12.50 should fit perfect under a 4". the weight of the diesel makes a surprising differance. cousin has a gas engine in his with 6 1/2" and his 37 12.50 fit no trimming.

I'm running 35's on a 99 SD with a 2" leveling kit. Just a tiny bit of rub at wheel lock on the inner wheel well but I am not going to mess with it. I'm not crazy enough to do any extreme ****e with my truck off road so in that situation it may not workn but for me its great and looks damn good too !!!!

most companys make different front springs between diesel and gas, for that reason....

on a SD with 4inches with the right springs and wheels 37's will fit with no problem the tire width will need to to be on the narrow side(say 12.5 or 13.5)

The Mickey Thompson ATZ are available in a 36" size. They are a very nice looking tire in my opinion. Thats what I'm going to buy when my 37's wear out. I have a 6" lift and when I turn to the left, I get major rubbing!
