    I agree with Zach. I run a 4" Skyjacker lift with 33's and I clear them no prob. I could probably run 35's if I cut my rear fenders. So I would say that 4" springs + 1.5" shackle lift + rear fender cut would equal enough room for 36's. Give it a try. If it doesn't you could fab up a small 1" body lift to do the trick. You might be careful putting shackles on the front of the rig, it will magnify any loose steering problems. Might consider doing a shackle reversal as well. Good luck man!
