    I would go for 32"tires, 33" will most likely rub unless you level your truck.

    most people run a 6" lift to fit 35's, but you can get away with 35's on a 4" with cutting of plastic

    hey sorry for the delay. what kind of truck do you have? I would recommend Rough Country. they are cheaper than anyone but still make very quality stuff. a 6" kit will run you about $1000 where other kits are around $1600. the only thing i would recommend tho is to get better shocks than the ones they give you cuz they dont last very long and dont ride that well. they will work fine for a little while but i would recommend upgrading to Bilsteins in the future. If you want to spend more I would recommend Fabtech or skyjacker lifts, a few guys on here have them and like them

    34's can go but thats about it.

    I have a 2000 that is levelled with a 18x9 and 325/65/18 tire combo. they rub very very little. I did have to trim a smidge of plastic to get them to rotate freely when turned. If you are going to use a 10" or wider wheel you will need a lift and will possibly still have to trim a little.

    I would also recommend the rough country 6". I put mine on about 5 years ago and it is great kit. I did trim the plastic and a little of the fender but I also did some heavy off-roading with it.
