They should fit. One of the members on here (ltjds) is running like 325/60/18. I think thats the right size. Anyway they measure 35x13. He has no lift at all on his truck either.

Well, I work for a 4x4 shop and it really depends on what you want to do with your truck. If you never leave the pavement, you can probably get away with a levelling kit. However, if you are going to be running some offroad, I would do nothing less than a 4" if you are keeping the factory rims. If you are putting on aftermarket wheels that are wider and have less back spacing, then the 6" is where you want to be. Just to illustrate a point, when the new trucks came out in late 04, we installed a 5" kit on a Harley CC SB. The customer supplied 35x12.50r20 on 20x10 and as soon as he drove off the lot, he went over the curb with the wheels turned and the tires hit the fenders. We ended up putting cut-out flares on it to clear the tires. Hope that helps.

Yup, for that size tire, I think I would put some lift under it.

Lift , Who needs em'

I have the above size tires on stock width rims on my 06' FX4.
No rubbin' under extrerme Left to Right travel (articulation) and no rubbin' in sand in 4x4 while moving on uneven terrain while turning any direction.
See my garage, for pics,,,,,,,,,,,,
And for the skeptics, I by, mistake ofcourse,,,LOL. Went over a set of RR X Tracks with a DIP and I know i cycled the suspension, (over 55mph ) and no RUBBIN'' SWEEEEET.
Just keep rim width stock or you will have issues... good luck.

well considering my stock tires are 34.5" tall rough i would say so. ive had the suspension fully flexed on rocks, and no issues.

i would put atleast a leveling on it though, just to make it look better
