If you ever wheel in mud (and in FL, you probably will) then the 33" MT is better than a 40" AT. Even the BFG KMs gum up really badly in mud and lose all traction. On the other hand, if it is dry, airing way down in a 35" AT would give you a bigger footprint and lots of traction.
With your current tires, are you getting stuck because you don't have enough traction or are you getting hung up because you lack clearance? Would 1" more clearance make that much difference?
I'd go with a 33" MT and a lift that can handle 35s for down the road. That way you won't have to worry about gearing or traction, and the lift will give you some more clearance under the frame.
