I would just leave the 36's, as I would think 3" lift spring in SOA as you have it are more than fine for that tire.

Just to clarify, you have much more than 7" of lift.

3" body, 3" spring and SOA (spring over axle) which is 5.5 to 6" of lift.

So, that is 12" total lift. dropping the 3" body lift, and replacing the tires with 33's will still leave you at 9" of lift with 33" tires, so it will basically look the same as it does now. only 6" closer to the ground. It is still going to be a tall top heavy ride. Not much of a daily driver.

But to each his own.

Yea I would keep the 36s, or maybe go to a 35x12.50 and run some newer, more road friendly tires. BFG All Terrain T/As or Duratracs I've always hated having to much space between the fender wells and tires.
