Should be fine with any 4" or 5"suspension lift and 3" body lift.

This is with the Skyjacker 4" + bodylift:

Thanks guys. Could you guys also reccommend any tires? I don't want to spend a crazy amount on tires but I also dont want to buy cheap tires that will need to be replaced soon

I have 35's on my truck and i did the 4" skyjacker and the 3" body. I still had to crank the torsions about an inch or so in order for the tires to not rub when i turned them all the way. So the 5" cst definitely wont clear them but if you add the body lift youd be good to go.
