What size lift with 33x12.5 tires?

I have an 04 Excursion. I just got XD Diesel's with 33x12.5 mud grapplers on them. What size lift should I go with? I was thinking about 5" but I was going to go with 35" tires....now that I got the wheels with smaller tires already mounted I dont' know what lift I should go with. Opinions and/or pics would be appreciated.

I'm confused...what size tires are going to stay on the vehicle? If 33s, just a leveling kit in front and a 2" block in the back. If 35s, do a 4.5"-6"...it'll give you room to move up in tire size without having to put on a bigger lift.
My sig is a 5.5" w/ 35s.

You don't want any std off the shelf kit with a Excursion as the springs are wrong from the factory. I've helped hundreds cure the Excursion handling problems..hundreds of posts on the results on the web..PM sent.
