Should run 33's with backspacing no lift required.

Bunch of 2/2.5" kits available. Shouldn't need to change anything if you're not lifting suspension.

A body lift is not the same as a budget lift but go with a budget lift which will consist of some spacers and either shocks or shock extensions... But 33 will fit as it sits now!

Take a look at this sticky, it will answer a lot of the questions you’ll have concerning lifts and whatnot.

EDIT: Welcome to the forum.
