6" and you will more than likely still have to do some trimming.

This would be a good thread to look at. http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...ight=pics+rigs

A six inch lift will clear the 35's. If you keep a close to stock backspace and use 8" wide wheels you wont rub at all. I am more of a fan of 10" wide wheels, so that is what i would do. Depending on the backspace it might hit the frame or knuckle under full lock turn.....not a big deal. If you pull a boat get the funds ready for a change to 4.56 or 4.88 gears. I had 4.56 gears and 33's and was very pleased with the towing, acceleration, and 4wheelin.

I've got their 7-9" lift on my 05 2500HD and it's awesome. Without cranking the TB's it cleared 37's, but needed a little trim on the front valance, so that lift would be perfect for you. The owner and employee are 2 pretty good people. They were easy to deal with unlike most of the 4X4 shops out there.

I have 17" rims and 35' on my 2005 GMC (crewcab shortbed) with a 6" lift. It looks and actually rides great.

I have the cognito leveling kit and love it. I wanted 4 inch but only made by Rancho. Be careful with most of the spindle lifts the two front tires are thrown real far out and the rear stays the same so the final look is goofy. Got all my info from thedieselplace.com, it is the OSO of GM trucks.
