Rough Country lift are great lifts. I've helped put a few on at a buddy's shop on jeeps and a few trucks and they are pretty easy to install and they hold up great. I'm sure that 33x12.50s would fit fine. it all depends on wheel size and offset. also some people like the wheel wells to be mostly filled by the tires and other like more room in there. its all personal preference. putting 33s on the stock rims may be a little big but craigslist always has an abundance of rims for sale for pretty cheap. the only reason i suggest a wider rim is because with having a 11.50 or 12.50 on the stock rims, you may see funny tire wear. i would say 10 inch rims and 33x12.50s on the 2.5 inch rough country lift would be a great set up. i am looking into this set up for my truck this coming spring too

I'm sure the 33"s would fit. I had a mid 80's silverado(I know different brand) 1/2 ton, fairly low riding 4x4, and 32x11.50r15's fit without rubbing.

I would suggest using a system with extended radius arms, there is no

Substitute, except SAS.

4 inch lift works/looks better 33s.

2.5 Rough Country Lift kit

Hello all. I'm new here but I was reading this post and I have a comment that may be helpful. I have a 94 regular cab with a 2.5 inch lift kit with 33 x 12.50 tires on stock rims. The only problem I have encountered is a little rubbing on the radius arms when turning real hard to the right or left. This would be taken care of by a set of aftermarket rims with a decent offset. Other than that the kit is awesome. The stance is good the clearance is good and it handles really good on the road. I drive my truck 60 miles a day one-way to work and the ride is great. I have ran murders and at's , I prefer the at tires due to the miles I drive on the highway but the murders look wicked. Thank you for reading. I have some pics I can send if you are interested.

sounds good, ya i really would hate to part with my aluminum wheels, they look factory still and to me they just look awsome. but one other question, once the kit is installed does it make any differecne leveling out the front any? or should i just go ahead and add a leveling kit to the front whil shes all apart?

With mine all I done was add a 1 inch block to the rear. Now I set level. One thing you will need to get that is not in the kit is adjustable camber bushings. Just go for the good ones, I got Moogs for mine
