Talking How much lift do I need

I have a 1986 Dodge W150 long bed. It has 33x12.50X15s on it. I would like to eventually run some 44x18.50x15s. It seems that the fender wells are pretty small on this truck. I would like to know how much lift I need to clear 44s. Right now I would like to try a 3 inch body and an 8 inch suspension, but im not sure that that will even work. I am also open minded about shavin the fenders some. So how much lift do i need with/without shavin the fenders?

Sorry pal. Perhaps, no one here has ever done that before. Why not try to drop by a mechanic shop near you. They might be able to give you some advice without any charge. I really am so sorry.
