Yes, but you might have a rough time finding a 33x11.50. 12.50 wide tires will be much easier to find or you could run 33x10.50s. If you plan on using your stock rims you will need spacers. If you are getting new rims I would get 3.75-4" BS to keep from rubbing and have a good turning radius.

The correct backspacing and 33s will fit with just some minor rubbing. However, if you plan on wheeling it hard, you'll need to do some more trimming.

However, you'll need to regear with the 33s to get the some acceleration that you're used to having.
