You can fit 31's with no lift and typically no major rub issues. 32's need a 2" and a different wheel or wheel spacers, 33's need 3" and wheels or spacers, 35's need 4+" depending on your suspension set up.

Yep, what they all said... If you want to go wider than 10.5" you'll need spacers or new wheels with less backspace... stock height 31" is as tall as you can fit and still maintain your flex.

Do you have AEV highline fenders on that? Or are they just painted black?

Pretty sure that's not a highline. Hood would change too.

Don't go for any more than 1" body lift or it starts to look stupid (sorry, that's been talked about many many times!) you don't gain any more flex...better to go with a real lift kit and get the flex AND the lift and better shocks and such while you are at it. Until you hit 4" lift you don't have to worry about driveshafts, axle angles, etc.
A 3" lift and 1" body lift will give you enough to clear 33" tires.
