20x12 lift or no lift

Alright guys I'm looking to get some 20x12 wheels for my 03 6.0 and wondering if I can shove them under my truck with the stock height? Or am I just silly?

BDS 4in lift with Fox shocks
20x12 962's on 35in Trail grapps
pro comp ladder bars (want something better)
DP tuner F5 chip

5in MBRP exhaust with 7in tip
05 Harley Davidson front end
Retro Solutions 55w 5k hids
And hopefully more mods to come

Tires should matter. The THINNEST tire you should put on a 20x12 is a 305/50-20. Which is a 32" tire. Backspacing will determine if you need a lift or not.
