What is BL? Whorever you are buying them from should know if the rim/tires will fit OK..otherwise go somewhere else. That's their job. Since you have nice 15 inch factory rims..why not go for a larger rim diameter?

That'd be awesome.

What if she cranks the t-bars? According to this chart she can run 33x10.5 with just a t-bar crank.

Wouldnt matter if she cranks the torsion bars. 2008 and up trucks dont get the same amount of lift. She would need to do the pre 2008 torsion key swap.

If you wanted to run 33's you'd need a body lift as long as the 33's are 33x10.50. if the were 33x12.50 they'd rub. Im looking into moving up to 33's myself on my 99 and I dont want to mess with the torsion bar crank
