Tire Clearance q's w/pics, need some input

I have 5.5" lift, 4.5" in rear (3"block, AAL) and am doing a BL when I get my efan and UD pulley in the mail here in next couple weeks. I thought 35"s would fit, but I'm having second thoughts now. The front will clear no prob I think except at full turn maxed supension mabye, minor though. The rear is what concerns me, I decided to test the travel and took some pics. The 32" fit almost perfect, 33"s would be perfect.

What are some opinions and thoughts on the rear and what tire size I could run with the added BL?

Here are pics:

Drivers side

Passenger side

Front wheel well drivers

Rear close to bottomed out

Rear fully tucked in (where the problem lies......)

2 more pics for understanding the angle and such

considering you have a 2wd coils spring truck

if you do the 5.5 lift and 3inch body lfit, you WILL fit 35s

when the cab/bed is lifted 3inches, you will never get it to look like that flex again, and if you do, you're destroying your leafs
