You will still need to trim no matter what lift, especially if you are running stock wheels

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

A few things here. The tire you want to run is too wide for the wheel you listed. Your gonna need at least an 8" wide wheel. Also, without the propper back spaceing, the tire will rub the UCA's. AND, a 3" lift would be the recomended size lift, and you will still have to trim your fenders to accomodate the tires. How much and where would be determined after they are mounted.

You need either a different wheel with atleast a 4" backspace or less or get some wheel spacers because they will rub on UCA's and frame on full turn, youll need atleast a 2.5 inch lift and you have to take off the front mudflaps and trim a little bit of the inner fender plastic where the mudflaps mount, other than that your golden
