Tire Chains on a 2005 Super Duty

I went to get a set of tire chains today and discovered that the chain industry considers the 2005 F350 to be an "S" class vehicle as far as chains are concerned. I think that means that the F350 has similar clearance between the tire and the closest vehicle component that most passenger vehicles have. The guy who was helping me checked several catalogs and then called a chain manufacturer who confirmed this. Looking at the truck also backs this up: there is little room between the front tires and the brake lines (which don't look easily reroutable). The rear looks a little better, but not much.

Has anyone looked into chains yet, or run any, for an '05 SD?
