33x11.50x17. Technically it is 32.7x11.2x17.

2" of lift should be enough for road use and easy offroad. I would add a body lift if you want more flex offroad (in addition to the 2" of suspension lift)...

3" minimum for 33" tire for street use, which is really not even good, 4" is what is really needed for offroading with 33" tires.
