    The higher you go, the more issues you are going to have and the more money you will need to spend to make it "right". A twelve inch lift is huge and will require all kinds of modifications, from a longer driver shaft to new gears (to push the much larger tires Im sure you would puTt on with this much lift). Also, with tires any larger than 35's on a 1500, you are going to over stress your axles. But hey, if its not a daily driver and you have the money, I would love to see pics of it completed!
