You should be able to fit a 33" tire easily, cranking the torsion bars will net you more clearance, but shouldn't need much. You MAY have issues with the tire bubbing on the control arm, but a 1/4" spacer would fix that, just since it's a 12.5" tire, but cross that bridge when you come to it.

well that's good haha got any idea how much those spacers will cost?

You should be good, but realize that cranking your t-bars shouldn't be a permanent way to lift your front end. I would take a look at getting some Bilstein 5100s when you have a little extra $$ And if you do need the wheel spaces you can look arounnd $50- $100 a set.

You can't put Bilstein 5100's on an 02-05. I don't understand why, but they only work on 06 and up. And a torsion bar key that cranks them up to gain 2" in the front is a common leveling kit for early 3rd gen trucks.

With a leveling kit you should be fine with 33's, but like they said, you may need about a 1/4" spacer to clear the upper control arm because of the stock wheels.

You can find them damned near everywhere that sells auto parts, normally less than $20 for a pair, but as an example:

From my understanding, anything over a 1/4" spacer requires new studs as you need at least 8 full threads shown on your studs.

I am wondering if your buddy had an issue because he put the 2" spacers on without new studs giving him only maybe 4 full threads, which is not enough. :4-dontknow:

The reason is because you can't put coil-over shocks on the 02-05.

You may not need the 1/4" spacer, I run 35"x12.5"s with STOCK rims and not rubbing at all.
