3" lift spindles in the front... Add A Leaf and shackles in the back.... 33" tires... maybe 1-2 mpg loss....

i cant verify that your stock rims will work until we know the brand of spindles

Or for a lot less money you could do a body lift, but if you have the money do a spindle lift and a BL and get some 35's, just remember to regear either way.

Exactly what this guy said! Although, I don't think 33x12.5x15 tires will fit too well on stock rims, wouldn't probably rub really bad, unless you went with a bit more narrow 33" tire. I'd recommend new 15x10 or 15x8 wheels with around 3.75 backspacing.
