Default will i clear 35" tires?

im going to go check out some tires tomorrow and need to know if they will fit without any modifictations. i believe my truck has the factory 3" dodge lift, i could be wrong. i currently have 31" tires and have plenty of clearance. in fact, they look a little small for my truck hence me getting bigger ones. the seller told me they are 35" gumbo monster mudders with 15" pro comp black steel rims with the dodge 5.5 lug pattern. im currently paying 500$ for the set of 4 rims and tires with a brush guard! what you guy think of the deal? i just dont want to travel an hour away to buy these and come to find out they are too big! here is some pics of my truck to give you guys a better idea. there is also a pic of the guys truck with the 35's and brush guard. any help will be appreciated.

My truck is factory stance and I have 33x12.50x15 tires.

I have plenty of room to spare. Since 35's are only one inch bigger there shouldn't be any problem at all regarding turning radius and/or tire travel with the factory suspension.

If you have 31's and want to go to 35's make sure you have a minimum of 2" of clearance with the wheel turned both ways since they're only 2 inches bigger.
