Finally, 10 posts into the thread and someone mentions this and becomes the voice of reason.

It all depends on what you are planning to do with it in the future. If you are doing it just for looks and driving on the road the body lift is the way to go... If you are planning on going to moab suspension is the only way to go, with either springs or SOA..

Of course if the OP is considering anything like 35's in the future and he only puts the minimum on for 33's he will find himself doing everything twice... including paying for it twice..

There's always that possibility. My point is people seemed to be answering the question not taking into account what the OP is looking to achieve now with the information given.

The OP was wanting to do an SOA so we were giving relevant information based on that fact, hence the title of the thread. The question on the body lift came after the fact.

Here you go, here is a good thread on body lifts

The OP was also was wanting to run 33" tires with a lift that will easily accomodate 35+ tires, hence my comment about noplainsdrifter's post being relevant instead of just giving the OP what he/she wanted to hear.

The body lift info has nothing to do with what I'm referring to.

SOA is still mucho better with 33s.
CSP..Come down to S. Florida. I'll buy you a beer and the 85 degree temperature will help you relax.

Come to Colorado for wheeling and high center of gravity/narrow stance will not fare so well.

If you think I'm grumpy now you should see me when the thermometer goes to over 80. No thanks!

Yeah, I guess you make a good point. I have more of the swampy old log hopping point of view.
