I need to do that.
I have 30" tires on now and they rub. Looks much better than the stock 215 tires though ! :-)
yes the lift is springs and shocks. the 33's are a little big i figure that they will rub wile offroading but i'm going to add 1in lift shackles later on. I'm not sure on the off set on the wheels but at full lock they do rub the leaf spring. I would really like to have some 32x11.50's but I already had the 33's from a old project. Saved me about 1000 bucks for now.

oh it wasn't really hard to put the lift on. i did mine in my driveway with hand tools and a grinder with a cut off wheel and a lot of pb blaster. it took a day and a half.

Here's a 1" lift with 235/75 tires:





2.5" lift would open up room for 31" tires.
