my truck had 33x12.50's on it with only a 3" body lift, very minimal rub and that was only with really big bumps.

your truck is also 4wd.

mine was 2wd and i had to put 2" lift coils on my truck to clear 31's with no rubbing.

i want to say 2" lift coils and a 3" bodylift.

nice, can i have your trans? haha.

yes, suspension lifts are better, a 4" suspension lift should be fine to run 33's i think.
