I have a 6 inch and I run 37x 13.5 but I had to get a drop down shackle for the front cause the front started to sag 4 inch lift I would go with 35's you can run 35's stock but look better with a lift. I can take a side view of my truck so you can see the tire clearence if you want.

35s! Just as long as they are wide. Mine are 35x 13.5, I have a 2in leveling and my dad has a 6" but his tires are only 12.5 and they look way different. They both look really good overall but the extra inch makes for an awesome stance.

If you could get a pic that would be great! I have been leaning towards the 6" with the 37's
