Default Pro Comp Nitro Lift on 2014?

I'm looking at putting on the procomp nitro lift. I've got a 2014 express crew and wanting to run 35's on the factory 20" wheels. Assuming I'll have to go with wheel spacers.
Any suggestions or advice on this setup?

Default Update: Kit installed

I purchased the Pro Comp Nitro lift from Amazon (part 61180K) for $265. And had it installed. The lift description says 2.5" front and 1" rear.
My stock measurements were 37" front (from ground to wheel well) and 39" rear. After the installation measurements were 40" front and 41" rear. So 3" front and 2" rear gain.
I am planning on keeping the factory wheels on, as I like the look of them. The wheels are 20 x 8. So I will have to run the 295/65r20 tire. Im fairly certain these will fit as they are only 11.6" wide. The local tire shop says no way they will fit so I am prepared to use a 1" wheel spacer if needed, but I think they are wrong.
I am very pleased with the look of the level kit. Now I just have to convince the wife I need to spend $1600 on tires.

If they are 20X8 you may just make those 295's. However, if they are 20X9 it is not very likely. 35's are definitely going to need spacers.

The Pro Comp kit is too much $$$.

You can get the Rough Country 2.5" front, 1.75" rear for well over $100 less. I am happy with mine and total install time in my garage with typical hand tools was 3 hours.

I will be running 35 x 12.5's on my stock 20's with a 1/4" spacer on the front. I am currently running 33x12's with no spacer and have about 3/16" clearance.
