What kind of terrain do you drive your truck on MOSTLY every day? Rhetorical question... No matter what terrain both of those tires suck. If you're wanting a nice mud terrain that will last you a while go with something like the KM2's. They might cost you a little more up front but it'll save you in the long run.

I don't think you'll have 3-4" sticking out but you really don't want that. Like I said in your other thread, your paint will hate you and so will your valance and flares. With 3.75 backspacing they should be flush with the outter edge of the flares. At most, an inch out.

Just a tt? what? You'll need a lift to fit those tires.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but 2wd Edge are the same height as a 4wd XLT correct? If so, then you should be able to run them with minimul rubbing.

Yes they are the same hiehgt. I have 32s and rub, you can get 33x10.5 w/ minimal rubbing, but 33x12.5 are going to be a prob

My 12.50's rub a little in the rear at full flex. And thats with the 3" BL and the factory alcoas. I'd hate to see the rub with no lift, and a wider wheel.
