1) depends on the tire width
2) need to know rim diameter
3) If you are getting a full 3" lift, UCA's are recommended

Need more info dude

Also, Ben asked you for the tire size.

You won't need new UCA's unless you go up to 3" of lift.

This is one of my older pictures but I am running 285/65-18"s with 18x9" wheels and a -12mm offset which equals out to a 4.5" backspace. Tires stick out about 1 inch past the wheel wells.

265 is your width. That is about a 10.5" (10.43) wide tire. A 275 is 10.83" and a 285 is 11.22" wide. Most memebers that lift run a 285. Your 17x8 will be fine for the 285, as well as the skinnier sizes. Your max height will be between 32-33". That's a 285/70 17 tire. With the wheel dimensions you described, you should be fine to run with 3" of lift. Use the below link to compare different sizes.

265/75 16 will be as high as you can go without lift. If you want 2" of wheel/tire sticking out of the well, it won't happen with the 265's

from the online tire size calculator


You should be able to run the 275/70 17 on the 4.5" BS wheels. It will give you a slightly higher stance than the tires you're currently runiing (about 1.5") but you will get the width you are looking for.

Here are some tires offered in that size.

Keep in mind you may have to trim. I would be concerned with the tire possibly rubbing the plastic when turning.
