Clearing 37s on a 03 6.0

Hey everyone im a little new to the truck thing and have a couple questions about suspension and tires.

I want to put 37s on my truck but im not 100% sure what it would take to make them fit.

I currently have 33s with no lift or leveling of any kind.

I have some 3 inch lift blocks and everything necessary to install them.

I know I will probably hear some bad things about using blocks to lift my truck and im well aware of the risks and things involved with them.

I guess what im trying to figure out is, will I be able to clear 37s with just a 3 inch lift

They might fit but they are gonna rub...seen a few people run them on 4inch lift but rubbed...most will say at least 6 inch for no rubbing, and that's gonna take the correct backspacing/offset

I made 3.5 blocks for the front of my truck with no lift in the rear. 35 rubbed a hair on a hard turn. I rounded off the plastic on the bottom on the bumper. Your def gonna have to do some plastic shaving or lift higher
