there is no such thing as tracker zr2 coils, sorry to burst your bubble. no zr2 pickup or blazer coils either......

2" coil spacer or body lift... after that it is a full kit and $$$

3" body lift and sledge hammer to the front innerwlls under your feet, weld the rear diff, add some 34x9.5 swampers on stock wheels and you have a very capible rig for cheap, I have built 3 like this and they are usally the last rig running after a hard weekend at the badlands and you can build it on the price of your buddys wheels and tires and only use a half a tank of fuel, alot of trackers even have air and this setup works great at the dunes also

Default sidekickin it

i had a 91 tracker that i stuffed cut cherokee springs under and got 31s to clear rather nicely but it rode a little stiff out back and needed limiter straps to keep the coils in on high articulations just take a little off the springs at a time untill it does what you like, heres a few pics of mine before i offed it not to mention i jumped the bejesus out of it and still daily drove it, its a bit hillbilly but like what was said above it was the last rig running everyday and i had about $150 bucks into it!

for $1000 calmini has a 3" lift that comes with virtually everything, and i think for that price they throw in a 3" body lift too. and with that type of clearance im sure you could fit 33 no prob.
