33's should fit on a stock 4X4, (they do on my 96' F-350 4X4 gasser)

From the looks of the pic in your avatar, it's stock, no lift. JMO though, and I'm no expert.

If you are looking to lift your truck for 33's all you need is a add a leaf in the front, and a 1.5 inch extention of the front bumper. When I did my left I added the leafs to the front and had plenty of clearance I thought. There is plenty of room in the rear of the tire. The tire will not hit anything on the wheel well of anything like that. However I did have some major hitting with the tires hitting the front bumper when trying to turn. All I did to fix that was to remove the factory nut/bolt that hold the bumper in place, and replaced the nuts and bolts with the same size and grade from LOWES. Then placed 1.5 inchs of washers to move the bumper out that far. I tighted everything down and you really can not tell I did anything to it. My truck is a 96 F-250 crew cab 4X4 with 33X12.5X16.5
P.S. if you have a dana 50 in the front be aware that your allignment will be off. You will need to get it alligned asap or you will destroy some good tires. I am replacing my 50 with a 60 that I am almost done rebuilding.

I think hes saying he wants to know if his truck has been lifted at all so he can get the right shocks and hes telling you the tire size because he thinks it might help tell if there is a lift on his truck, anywase thats how i read it.

Remove the shocks and take them to the autoparts store with you. Or find the part number on the shock. And have the autoparts store look up the part number that is on the shock. That will allow them to see what shocks you have on your truck.

I aggree by looking at the picture in your avatar your truck looks like it is stock hieght. If it is leveled out stock size shocks will still work.
