as long as the lug pattern is 5 x 4.75 you should fit. As for rubbing Issues... you may need to trim some fender. 3.75 backspacing is 2.25 less than you have now, & the rim is wider....
that will be your only drawback wheel wise. everything else has worked for others here. your lift : tire ratio seems to work for others. Just watch the back spacing. as a rule, the closer you get to 6" the better. It is hard to find that high of BS for aftermarket rims though....

31's aren't going to fit without MAJOR rework of the fender/firewall. Even with stock rims, 31's just do not fit (unless you find special 31's that are 29" diameter like another member).

With the back spacing being that low, you are going to run into even more interference.

even with the 2" body lift and 2" shackles and the t-bar crank? i just got back from the zr2 forum and they have a few just like mine with that setup and it def works on a stock rim!

Your truck is not a ZR2 though. This has been gone over 'ad nauseam' in this section.

my money is still on the trim job....
Just stay open to the idea of clipping some fender is all.... it beats the hell out of buying new front tires...
