Just put the tires on now and install the body lift later.

x2.

I have essentially the same setup and it's easy to get the hang of what will cause a rub, and how to avoid it. The few times I do rub I know I'm going to rub before it even happens. Now, if you're crawling rocks or do crazy flexing like that, then yeah you'll likely run into issues.

Yeah one of the SoCal guys had 31" inch tires with a 3" spindle lift & AAL and he would complain about rubbing. On the other hand, there were a few SoCal guys that had 32s & no lift or 33s & a 3" spindle lift and didn't seem to have an issue with rubbing. So basically I think it boils down to A) What kind of offroading you plan to do (eg: amount of flexing) B) Driving style
