Yup, you won't have any problem with that.

A 325/60/r20 is essentially a 35.4"x12.8" tire. Most guys run 35"x12.5" with just a 2.5" level on 20x9 0 offset rims and have no problem. With the extra body lift you'll clear them easily.

Be sure to post some pics with you get it all set up!

I definitely will I am having a heck of a time with my decision. I am trying to decide if I would rather do a 4 or 6 inch rcx lift, or just the body lift. Got the tires and wheels settled though.

Well if you're going to do a suspension lift, go with the 6". It's barely more money than the 4" kit and you'll be kicking yourself down the road if you only do 4". Plus I don't like how the RCX 4" kit uses rear coil spacers rather than a new spring. If you're going to do a 4" lift I'd recommend Zone because of the rear springs. For a 6" RCX is definitely the way to go. Keep in mind you will want Bilsteins with the RCX kit to be able to level the truck properly.

Oh yeah definitely switching to bilsteins no matter what i do.. I really just don't want to go with a 37 because i think it would slow me down so much, and I am hoping that 35s will go well with the 6 inch lift. I'm thinking 6 inch lift, the km2's, throttles, and bilsteins are gonna be the final product, but I change my mind daily thats why I haven't ordered yet

Haha, I definitely know where you're at. I have the same problem.

Honestly I think 35's look fine with a 6" kit. That's what I'm planning to run for the same reason, I don't want the power loss with 37's. Especially because I only have a 4.7. lol.

If you are going with Bilsteins and the lift you are planning to install them at the same time though right? Otherwise you're gonna have to fork out for alignments two different times.

As far as making decisions and such. I'd say just go for whatever your gut tells you and then forget about it. If you think about it too much you'll phsyc yourself out and second guess everything. If you've done the research and have a good idea in your head chance are it will work out and look great.

You would want to install the Bilsteins as you put the front lift on the truck. If you don't have a spring compressor take your stock struts and the Bilsteins to the shop while your front end is apart and get them to set them up whil your truck is apart. Then install them as you put it back together. That's much easier and will save you money. Then let it settle for a few days before taking it in for an alignment.

Yup, go for the 37's!
