Help with 3.5 in susp. lift

I'm looking to get a suspension lift and put on 31" tires.
Every shop i go to is telling me that the tires will rub and that i will need to get a 5" lift for tires that big.

Does anyone have a 3.5 sl with 31's? And how good is the clearance?

thanks

I ran 31's stock for a while, it barely rubbed, then I lifted it 2", with 2" of lift it never rubbed, I've got 5" of lift now and 31's look a little small to tell you the truth.

Anyway, 3.5" with 31's should look pretty good, it also shouldn't rub at all.

I have 31's on my ranger with a leveling coils and they dont rub at all and they barely rubbed without the leveling kit. As long as your trucks a 4x4 the 3.5" lift should be able to fit 33's

I ran 31s stock on my 2wd for a while and they never rubbed for me. I put my 3 inch BL on and really did some good stuff to is and they never rubbed.
