You are going to need some wheel spacers to make the 05 rims fit correctly on your 04.

Then you might be able to squeeze some narrow 35's.

04 and older used 0 offset wheels. 05+ uses +40 offset wheels. (different axles with the coil suspension )

By the time you get done buying quality steel spacers, you could have bought some 18x10s with a -25 offset (remembering that offset requirements change with width). From there, just like any other 99-04, you should be able to run a 33 (ie a 285/65-18 BFG or a 305/65-18 Falken) without any suspension work at all.

A 33 will work, (285/75), but I like those on AT LEAST an 8" wheel with a 10" wheel being ideal. I ran my 285s on both on stock suspension.
