You'll probably have to do some trimming. I'm army about 5.5" with 33's and the fronts would rub on the stock fenders a bit at the back do th wheel well with out much flex.

Others will chime on with Picts.

You can run 33s at 3'', **** you can run 35s with no lift if you trim and bumpstop enough

I wasn't to sure on the clearance thanks if I were to run 33s without trimming what kind of lift would i have to go with(Will be trimming them in the future for the flat style flares)

4.5, but with those flares, you dont actually trim much.
Im at exactly 3'' over stock(front and back), 31x10.5x15, 15x8s 3.75 Backspacing, Trimmed to the first lip under the stock flare. still hit them when I flex. Right now if I bumpstopped, I could fit up to 35s, but im not geared for that.

For a real capable rig there's no real way to do it without trimming a good amount, or having stupid amounts of lift to clear just 35s.
