What size tires to put on

Looking at replacing the tires on our 2006 GMC half ton 1500 4wd Z71, after 65,000 km's i would like to put on some bigger ones then stock and something that will get us through the tough spots to the field, what size can i put on without messing up the computer and how do you change the computer to accept a tire size bigger, what tire size and make do you all recommend and like, thanks.
