3" lift with 33's

I have an 02 Tj and am looking to put 33's on it. I'm looking at the 3" Zone lift. Will this lift alone allow me to put the tires on it that I want or will I need to add like an inch or so of body lift?

A 3" lift should allow you to clear 33" tires. You may need some new wheels with smaller backspacing or some 1" wheel spacers to stop any rubbing during tight turns. You will need some pretty large bump stops to stop the tires from hitting fenders as well.

Are you hoping to flex the suspension or just daily drive it?

You'll be able to fit the 33's with the 3" Zone Lift. You won't have a ton of room to stuff the tires before they hit the bump stops, but you'll be able to run mild trails and drive on the road fine. The kit includes everything you should need. Let me know if you'd like a quote or have any other questions!

3 inch is really not enough. You will really benefit from a body lift. (a body lift will set you up nicely for a tummy tuck in the future.)

I ran a 3'' and 33's for about 4 months and would really get my flares with any decent amount of flex.

in fact the picture in my avatar is with 3'' and 33's no body...
