You might see some fender rub, but I'm not 100% sure.

They may not clear fully, throw a level kit up front for a little more lift, or a body lift to get the more clearance!

If you do the 6" with 37's it will also come down to the wheels you use and the tires, the rubbing would probably only happen at full lock too

37's would only require an inch more clearance than 35's. as long as the tire width stayed the same it would probably work fine. good luck, post pics when your done. very interested in the result

Mopar Performance Dodge Ram Lift Kits 09-10 1500 4WD

Give your Dodge Ram a boost in the height department with a Mopar branded lift kit. Designed to clear up to 37" tires while maintaining factory turning radius. Kits are compatible with all vehicle systems including electronic stability control. Each kit is manufactured to give your Dodge Ram a 4" life over base model Ram's. Since the TRX4 models already have a 1" lift over base model trucks, the supplied kit for that application provides 3" of lift while the application for base models incorporates a 4" lift.

Hope this helps!

37s wont rub if you have a 6" lift on. i have the mopar 4" and i fit BF Goodrich 37x12.5R20 there is a slight rub for me in full steering lock out. im going try throwing a 1/4" spacer in to completely get rid of the rubbing

When I had my 6" BDS lift installed with 37x12.50x20 with 20x10 -18 offset and 4.7 back spacing mine did not rub at all.

Do not do any spacers on top of your lift your asking for trouble. get some bilstein 5100's if you want to lift the front more.
