You'll be OK.
If you're still worried... Go the 4" route.

Let me know if I can help you with either

You can definitely get away with that. I was running a 6" RCX lift with Bilsteins at 1.4" on 35's on my 1500. You can check out THIS thread for tons of pictures.

Pretty Damn good IMO
When I had 37 and 3.55 is was sub 9 MPG.
Power was GONE!

When I can't take my wifes car anymore off the line, I had issues. LOL
Im no way a drag racing or speed junkie, but I do like my power when I need and want it

That is one mod I do not regret doing. It ain't cheap, but totally worth it

I ran on 35's last winter and my truck was FUN to drive in the city.
Not so good on the freeway as it revved high.

4.56 and 37's is probably the best pairing for fun and MPG
3.92 and 35's will be similar to my setup

Might be a stupid question but what gears come stock with a 2012 ram sport?
and if I do add a body lift, bilsteins and 37s on top of my 6 inch what gears should I have?

Either 3.55 or 3.92
If you're not sure, you more than likely have 3.55 or you possibly lucked out and got 3.92 and did not know...

Power wise, you'll be ok!
MPG wise, you'll still see a hit

Call your dealer and provide your vin
However, since you don't know, there is a high chance you have 3.55
