    Welcome @BLUE DREAM ....it will look okay parked but thats about it. Lifts, spacers and bigger tires go hand-in-hand.

    2" Superlift kit. 315/ 70/17.
    Welcome @BLUE DREAM . As mentioned. It would look nice as a huge lawn ornament. Not very nice driving thou.
    Spacers vs. lift kit. All depends on your budget, experience, and what your looking for in a rig.

    A bunch of very knowledgeable members here who are very willing to help. Post up any questions you have.

    33s make a good fit. Quality wheel spacers properly installed can be a safe alternative when using OEM wheels for most rubbing issues
