tire fitment

So ill be gettin a 02 f150 extended cab short box. I want to clear a 33 12.50 with a level kit and maybe add a leaf in the rear. Wondering if this is possible or what my other options are on a budget. Any input would be helpful thank you.

Was that with a body lift or a leveling kit? I'm trying to stay away from a body lift if possible

rancho makes a really nice leveling kit for front, get you the lift you want and still keep factory geometry

im not sure how many people understand tortion keys. but from what i understand and read just twist the stockers up like on my 97 and it gives the same thing as a key does. then i put garbiel hijacker shocks on the rear and done i clear 33s and could most likely clear a 35. my 97 expy had 37s with a 3inch body lift and tortions cranked up

I would stay away from keys, i have not seen but a handful of good reviews on them from people who use them. I would stick to a torsion twist, and then get an alignment.

Haha a lot of options! Thanks for everyone's input
Still unsure of what I want to do though. After talking to a buddy of mine, he almost has me convinced to just sas it. I would obviously be goin bigger than I originally planned but then the whole IFS issue is cleared up
