Default Help on deciding some customizations!

Hey all, haven't posted in a while but I have been having some thoughts on adding some more customizations to my truck. Its time for new tires again, and searching online really got me thinking mud tires this time. I just need some input on whether I should go with a leveling kit and run 35" or stick with 33s. Currently right now, there is no lift or leveling kit on the truck and I have 33" Nitto terra grapplers. I wanna go with something a little more aggressive, but at the same time I do not have loads of cash to dump into the truck at this time. What are the opinions, leveling kit and 35" or should I skip the leveling kit and stay with 33" and look for a more aggressive tread?

Thanks!

80$ for the leveling kit. $1,000+ for an aggressive mud tire.

No leveling kit - 0$ and just paying for tires...

Then there's the installation of the level (unless you DIY) then an alignment plus mounting and balancing of your tires...should get out the door for under $1400 depending what size tires you can find for $250 ea.
