What size tires can I fit on my 03 xl 2wd with/without lift?

What size tires can I fit on my truck with only cranking the torsion bars? As of right now from the ground up to back finderwell measures 33" and the front measures 31". I know I can crank the torsion bars about 2", so what size tire could I fit comfortably without rubbing? And what size tire would be suitable if I put a 3" body lift on after tightening the torsion bars? I plan on doing this with my income tax so please help since i will be getting the money soon. (I've never lifted a truck before so I'm kind of dumb in this area of expertise)

Your truck does not have torsion bars, so you cannot crank them

So my only option is a body or suspension lift? Is it possible to do 5" in the front and 3" in the back to make the whole truck sit level at 36"?

Can't Superlift either. That's for 4x4s.

Get a spindle lift for coil sprung trucks for the front, and shackles in the rear.

Then throw a body lift on top of that with some 35s

Spindle lift: few hundred bucks
Body lift: $150-200
Shackles: $45

That's just for parts. If you don't put it on yourself, obviously the price gets much higher. It's not hard to do though.

The size of the rim won't affect anything, but their backspacing will.

Alright thanks. I've decided to do a 4" spindle lift and 2" shackles to set the truck level at 35" from ground up to f inderwells. I'm still not sure on the tires though, I'm thinking the 31x10.5x15 but maybe a 17" rim instead. And get this plain ole Jane truck looking like a real truck
