there are lots of spring over lift kits out there some more complete that others heres a link to a place that sells economical lift stuff but you need to be able to weld a 5" spring over still wont fit 33 with out cheating the axle foward or trimming the ft fendrers and outer stock ft bumper mounts . and the rear usually needs trimming also if you put a body lift on stuff might clear I dont like body lifts so havet ever used one other than to remove them. anyway thats my 2cents
the guy he is refering to is proly me...yes i dont have hardly any flex and can be kinda scary when you go off camber but its also kinda exciting too...i can get some massive wheelies coming outa holes and i dont have to beat on it cause im locked front and rear..i used a kit from ebay from hell creek suspensions and it was less than $400 with shipping...had to mod the brake lines but i came with everything else to do the kit except shock..i bought rancho 5000 shocks when they were buy three get one free so total i have less than $500 into my lift and still kept it spring under...too a day to do the is a link to there website.....

have fun with your new toy..
