Well, for the average person without a decent welder, getting a solid axle swapped in for under $2500 is going to be tough, considering a lot of the work will have to be done in a shop.

i think you should put on:
6 inch suspension lift from skyjacker..
2. in bodylift
35 inch wrangler mtrs
onboard air..
mayber a locker in the rear and front... for those burnouts
thats all i can think of right now

You don't need a body lift to run 33"s. You don't need to do anything in fact, except put the tires on.

I've been running 33"s on my '02 XLT for almost 3 years now and there is no damage to the tires or the truck.

How much do you offroad, Dave, and to what extent? Have you ever cycled the suspension through full travel front and back?

Also, let them know your wheel backspacing since that could be important for them to know to emulate your success.
