No, 20 people on this site run a 3" BL and none have had problems that weren't caused by faulty install. No the lift will not change the speedo, the bigger tires you can fit will though. Again the lift will not change the shifting, the bigger tires will though.

Search body lift tips, you'll find tons of info.

And get this one instead:
