You may rub on the front bumper a little when you turn. It's very easy to cut a bigger radius into the edge of it though. I've run 37's on a 6" lift on an '03 SD. You should be just fine.

It should be fine. Be careful if you do need to use spacers. I know I can't work on vehicles at my work that have them due to the chance of a wheel coming off.

You can always pull/adjust your bumper farther out. Take a look at yer bumper mounts. Most are slotted
