I had a 2wd, 3.0 with a lift and 33s for a long time (still have 2 of those 3
) and it's not an issue.
The main things you'll want to do to help out with the big tires is regearing to 4.56 in the rear end (very important, especially if it has 3.73 gears now) and getting a tuner (not as important but definitely worth it).
