You have a few options as far as lifts go for your 2wd. You can go with a 3in spindle lift or a 3in body lift. Alot of the guys on the forum that have 2wd trucks go with the spindle lift because it is cheap and it looks better then a body lift. Although some opt to do both a spindle and a body lift so they can run 35's. With the spindle you will have to add a leaf (AAL) or blocks in the rear to make it even with the front. With a body lift (BL) there is no need for AAL's.
If you are wanting a 3in lift, I and most would agree that 33's would be your best option. That being said you need to figure out what gears your truck has. 4.10's and
33's are a great combo. You might have 3.73's or 3.55's which would be worse with the bigger tires but absolutly doable.
Do it your self and you are going to save alot of money. The BL kit cost about $250 and the spindle I am guessing at under $500 for front and rear. If you have it professionally installed it will cost alot more.
Tire cost is going to vary alot in price. Your truck will either have 15in or 16in rims. If you are wanting a true 33x12.5 in tire you will want to go with 15in rims. If you have
16's and dont want to get new rims then you are looking at 285/75/16 which is a
32.8x11.5. 15in tires and rims are cheaper.
Hope this helps.
