No offense to any one who runs them, but a body lift has two problems,
1 is it creates a point of oops by the body shifting and possibly shearing a bolt off at the mount.
2 it also means extending steering shaft,brake lines and hiding the gap.
I have no experience with the new models wit the coils but basics of backspaced rims and a decent suspension lift should cover the height to clear the 30" tires.
Possibly a little rub on the body mount under articulation is the only issue I can fore see with a 3" lift.
Find a buddy with a spare 30" tire mounted up and mock it up with no lift and note where the rub and scrubs are.
