    Alot. Go with 5100's and an AAL.
    Might be cheaper and you will be much happier.

    word... body lift wont help much with putting bigger tires as they tires will hit your frame before it hits body...

    3" suspension lift will let you clear 33s or 285-75-16

    of course, you will want to run a 4" backspace to help with clearance and even then, you may need to do some extra minor trimming...

    Body lifts will run you a lot of problems. Go with a suspension lift.

    To the OP mostly everybody on TW (including me) is extremely bias to; body lifts, spacers, and annoying people. You are not going to get a positive answer on all three of them.

    You can get billys for 300 from downsouthmotorsports and i think if you set them at 2.5 you should be able to clear 33's. Someone correct me if im wrong. That would be much better than spacers.

    Lost track many, many mods ago.
    Body lifts really aren't all that expensive. If you're not a serious offroader than they are fine if you just wanna fit bigger tires then it's the most economical way of doing it. You can fit 33" with a little bit of trimming.
