ok, if you dont want to trim the fenders, or touch the torsion bars then why not get a simple 3 inch body lift and clear 33x12.50's?

32s will fit with just a slight t-bar crank and will not rub and will give enough travel offroad to not worry. The tire place can crank your torsion bars if you tell them to(unless their dicks or retards), but its an easy thing to do at home even before going into the tire place

i've got a 2001 4x4 stock suspension, i just raised my t-bars about 2 inches, the 265's clear nicely without any rubbing.
as for wether tire places will raise your t-bars, just ask.
