    8 in. of lift? You could probably go with 37's if you want. 35's should be no problem.

    You'll clear them. Easy. However, you might end up having some issues. IFS is know to have issues with tires over 35inches. I know a few people who run 37's with IFS, and he's pushing it. His CV Angles are Horrible. And he has 17inch wheels.

    With 37inch tall tires, and 20inch wheels, your looking for problems. That's alot of tire, and a lot of wheel for IFS to handle. Not to mention the 10 bolt rear.

    As long as you don't plan to beat the living crap out of your truck, and just keep it on the streets, 35's and 20's will be fine for you. As long as you don't plan to go muddin or anything extreme.
