Going back to factory

So after much debate I want to get my rig back down to around factory height. Currently I have I believe about a 6.5 inch lift. So I need some input for some people here on tires. I think Im going to keep my current wheels (Diamo 18x10). My question is what would be a good tire size that would fit with these wheels when its back down to stock height? I was thinking of possibly 33x12.5.18 Toyo's. Who here has some pics or suggestions on what would be a good fit, I'm thinking 33's is the largest I want to run, actually I dont think anything bigger would fit on a 03 anyways.

If using 33's I think you might need a leveling kit, but not sure. Also are you going to be selling you your 6.5 kit?

BPD Oil cooler
BPD Bypass oil filter
Sinester EGR delete
Blue Spring
Muffler delete
Scangauge2
Mickey Thompson Baja's, bought it that way
CAT EC-1 coolant
Dfuser coolant filter
High Idle Mod

Things to do:
Damn studs
SCT Tuner
ccv mod
BPD FICM when its released

Yeah that's what I figured with 33's. I'm actually going to try and find someone who wants to swap me out their stock suspension parts and they can have all mine for free. This prevents me from trying to go down to the salvage yard and find everything I need to return to stock

I have a friend with an 04 stock height no level kit running 285's on 18's with no rubbing. They look about the same height as a 33. I think you would be fine with that size.

After doing some research I'm leanin towards some Bfg At 305/65/18 which is very close in size to a 33/12.5/18. So I'm going to give them a shot

Dang it!!! Although looks like you have a 05 I think I would need a 03/04 for the correct stuff.
Oh and Im by no means a expert when it comes to suspension and Im trying to figure out exactly what I would need to return to stock. I took some quick pics, can anyone tell me what ballpark wise what I would need to find

I did that once...

Looks like removing spacers/blocks and new u-bolts in the rear, and new spring shackles and panhard arm mount in the front. But the pictures are a bit limited...

I am currently running the same wheel size (35" Toyo's on 18x10 wheels) on an '03 with zero lift and do get some rubbing from lock to lock. When I ran the slimmer Bridgestone AT 35's, I had very little rubbing--but still some present. I image 33" BFG's will be just fine...
