Here's some pics for you to look at. Whichever size lift you decide on will allow us to give you advice on tire size.

With the 4" lift, I think 35's look good. In my opinion, 37's look too "stuffed" with the 4" lift. Mopar has a 4" lift you could have installed and still maintain your factory warranty. BDS makes a really good lift, I'd look at them also. For tires, I like the look of the Nitto Trail Grapplers. I've never owned M/T's, so I don't have any first-hand experience with them, but here's a thread worth looking at:

That's a tough number to estimate. You have to take into account where you buy the lift, shipping, and install. Same deal with rims/tires, it depends on whether you're going with an 18" or a 20" rim, etc.

A programmer would be the next mod I'd look at. The DiabloSport Predator is a popular tuner for the Hemi. It's even got it's own sub-forum on here. Check it out, see what you think: http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=138
