Actually you should be able to fit 34s without any lift or leveling kit. My F350 has the 275/65/20 tires which measure about 34" x 11" and they clear just fine. With a leveling kit, you should be able to go 35 x 12.50 x 18.

I just did mine yesterday. It was very easy, and I will be getting 35's this month no sweat. Here is the thread of the install. You can see it didn't take much time at all considering all the phone calls we get in a day.

ReadyLift leveling kit.

My brother put 35 x 12.5's on his 250 and they fit, but rubbed the inside fenders something fierce on sharp turns. He used that as an excuse to put a 4in lift on it then. With the leveling kit it should be no sweat...
