Exclamation wheel and tire package

I have a 2000 ford ranger 4x4 xlt 4.0l v6 that I just bought and has 245/75/16's on it but there more of a touring tire.. I just bought 4 33x10.5x15 tires in the bfg mud terrain km2's for $165 a tire and I'm ordering 15x8 wheel with a 5x4.5 bolt pattern my question is under my stock suspension and hitch I have now do I need a lift to get rid of the rubbing issue if any. And if a torsion crank will be enough. If not would you all recommend a body lift of 3in or a leveling kit? This is my early xmas present to myself nd I don't want any rubbing problems xD thanks in advance..

33's with no lift are gonna be close for sure. you will need to crank the bars definitely. I would recommend more lift as well. not sure what the hitch has to do with your question?

Crank the bars, mount them and then test it out. If it does rub at all it will be minimal probably.

What ever the difference in tire size is: your stock tires are about 30.5 give or take. you will prob get 1.5 to 2 inches with the new tires.

You might have to remove the mud flaps and brackets as well as the t-bar crank, I did with my 33's
