I can't get 30s to rub at stock-height, and I've tried! Get a 91-93 two-door, tastefully hack the fenders, put a decent 2" lift on, swap in axles from a 4-cyl, and strap on your 33" tires.

91-93 2-door- $3000-4000
Fender-hack- $150 for tool to do it unless you already have or can borrow one
4-cyl axles (have 4.10 gearing)- $300-500 depending on your location
2" lift- $200-500 depending on what the quality is and what it comes with (shocks, discos, etc)
33x12.5" tires- $270/set of 4 or $338/set of 5
Total (using all the highest values)- $5488
