If you didn't pick a kit yet I'd reccomend the adrenaline one, I have the dakota kit on my truck. It's pretty sweet and rides really nice. I don't think I would be able to clear 33's without rubbing unless I get some new offset rims (which they fail to tell you) I have 255/75R17 about 32" tall 10.4" wide, Goodyear wranglers on R/T 17x9's and they rubbed a bit. Possibly thinking of using 0.5" spacers from baer brakes.

This write up is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks everyone who has put into this! I just got in to a 2002 Durango SLT with 265/70/16r and I'm looking to get onto Goodyear Durateks 285/ 75/ 16 I would be different rims with better back-spacing for the rims.

I had to cut my inner fender wells a bit like the OP had done in hia write up.Then I built my bumper and ball joint spacers. I got no rub unless I'm going trough some really rough areas. I also have wheel spacers on as well.
