They'll fit, but they rub on the inside of the wheelwell. Nonthin you can really do about that. You can trim your valence and fender flares to keep from rubbing too much, but they'll rub pretty well on hard turns. That didn't stop me from running it until I could afford my superlift:

if you are gonna spend the cash on tires that big why not spend the cash on the Body lift. I am sure you could find it cheaper on ebay. that is where I got mine and I got it for like 100 or less I forget the exact amount.

If you really want the 33's then get the BL also. If you are looking for a more aggressive look then you won't get too aggressive a look with stock rims because the tires are going to be inside the wheel well. Unless you get some wheel spacers.

thanks for all th input. I should specify what i'm looking for. I already have a 3" body lift on the truck now. I heard that off roading with a body liftd mess up your cab and bed with the extra flex from the blocks. Besides that i want that prerunner look for my truck. I can't afford a $4,000 dixon bro's suspension to widen my track so i came up with the idea to take off the bl, buy 3" fiberglass fenders and put on 33's on my 15 eagle alloy rims. i know it's cost more but i just wanted to know if it's possible and will work.

FYI I wheel my truck with a body lift and I have seen many body lifted trucks wheeling and I have never heard of anyone that had a problem unless they jumped the truck. If you are doing some extremly tough rock crawling I could possibly see it as a problem but if you are doing that then having the BL mess up the truck is the least of your problems. But with some casual wheeling you will be fine with a body lift.
