6" lift with 37?

Taking the plunge today and ordering a lift but the shop I'm working with is saying some things that are concerning. I want to run 37s and would like to get a way with a 6" lift (coils up front and blocks in the rear).

Should I worry about rubbing/clearance issues?

They seem to think its not an issue with 37s on a 20x10 rim.

Please help

I run 35s in a leveling kit with no rubbing. So I doubt your going to rub with a 6 inch lift with 37s.

You'll be fine. Guys have ran 37's with minimal rubbing with just a leveling kit.

Your good. I have a 6" on 35X13.5 and I have plenty of room. My next tires will be 37s!

Great looking truck. Im in VA too (Reston, actually). Do you ever come out to ChickFilA? Who installed your lift or did you do it yourself?
