don't get terra grapplers... there good at first but i want a much more aggressive tire.. my truck came with them so i didnt have a choice but i am going to buy a full mud tire when i lift mine. could possibly sell my 285/70 nitto terra grapplers with 80% tread or so on them if you want them..

as for the lift your only option after the 3" body is the superlift which is a 4"/3" lift which is 4 in the front and 3 in the rear. Off-road performance for this kit is good but can be made better with a coil-over conversion and/or modifications to the rear lift. Superlift is $1600 or so

Terra Grapplers...not a fan...Not enough gap in the tread, packs really easy. GF's truck has 35" grapplers...so I do have some experience with them.

Not sure if they even make a 33x11.50, 10.5 and 12.5 I know they do...

What about the BFG Mudterrain's? 33x12.5 looks pretty good (even on a 8" wide wheel). Also, what size wheels are using?
