A 33" tire would be about 5" taller than what you have now. With your 3" lift you should be able to get them to clear but you'll want to make sure your wheels are wide enough for them. Stock 15" wheels for your YJ are only 7" wide.

The link below will help. The offset will be stamped somewhere in the back of the wheel.

Backspace and Offset - How do they relate?
