I might just do that and see what happens. Worst case I just have to put a body lift on it.

I have the same lift with 31s and I have lots more room. I'm sure I could easily fit 33s.

If it rubs a tiny bit without the body lift, change the body bushings and it'll probably bring it up enough to keep from rubbing.

Also, if you're planning for a SAS and 35's, then set the ride height higher when you put an axle under the front.
