What's the difference between a leveling kit and body lift?
A body lift is spacers between the body and frame, leveling kit is either spacers on top of the coil springs or new longer springs, basically a small lift

All of this is very sound advice if you are on a limited budget. Going beyond 2.5" will lead to other mods. Even 2.5" is no guarantee that they will not be needed. Compared to you 29s the 33 will be large improvement.
