Have 1.5 spacers on wheels and 1.75 coil spacers. Will this allow me to upgrade to 295/70/17 tires? 33's

That's what I thought but was hearing that stock lift and 33"s would cause possible rubbing

33's do not necessarily require lift. But that's because it's only one part of the equation. It's the width that causes the most issues.
Skinny 33's shouldn't rub on stock rims. I believe up to 265 wide. Beyond that I believe is where it begins, both rub and stuff under the fender at disco compression. That's where lift, aftermarket back space, spacers, etc become part of the equation.

295/70-17's are basically a 34x12.00 tire. So you will probably need wheel spacers to keep them from rubbing your control arms at full steering lock.
