Bushwacker Flat Style Flares

Hey everyone,
I've been looking at these fender flares for a while now because I am interested in putting 33's on the jeep, but I don't want to invest in a lift yet. I've heard that these flares give a few more inches in clearance for the bigger tires.
If anyone on here has these flares on their jeep with 33's and preferably no lift, I would really like it if you could post some photos. Any pics and information is greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot,
Tyler

I believe they do, however I've heard that there can be a bit of rubbing.

I had a bit of rubbing on mine when I put 33's on it, but I fixed that by lifting it a little. And I think my new bumper will help some too. I also believe a winch may help with the rubbing too.

Hmmm... I see a trend in this. I should just keep telling myself that I need to add a new bumper, lift, winch and more to help with the "rubbing". I like it!

The rubbing is due to backspacing on stock rims, not height clearance.

I have them. I run 35" KM2s with 2" lift.

Interesting comparison

I run Khumo 33x12.5 tires on Rev 50 Caliber 17 x9 " wheels on my 2010 Wrangler with stock fenders and no lift and mine do not rub anywhere.

Depends on which rub point you're talking about.

33s on mine with wheels having 4.5" backspacing and I rubbed the rear fenders at full-stuff. Knocked the driver's rear fender off 3 times before getting a lift...

This is what 33s look like without a lift and with stock fenders. I think that with flatties and proper backspacing, you'd be good to go.
