You wouldn't by chance have a side shot of your jeep would you?

I would trim those rubicon rocksliders, change to a rear bumper with more tire clearance, and put a set of 35s on there. Betcha that would work with no supsension lift.

Do you really need the spacers? I am hearing mixed info on this. I have the flat fenders and am going to get rims with 4" backspacing. Some people say this will clear 33"s with no spacers.

You should be good. The backspacing will effectively function as a spacer. Most of the folks with spacers have stock wheels (6" of backspace), and the spacer reduces this to 4.5" or so.

Thanks for the info. That's what I figured, but I found anything specifically mention wheels with less backspacing.

Your golden with 4" backspacing and 33's unless you happen to go super wide but even then I think you would be fine with only minor adjustments needed if anything.

I'm running flat bushwackers and stock wheels and tires with a 2.5 budget boost. Also running 1.5 spacers. I am ordering a set of wheels with 4.75 bs and will run factory tires until I decide what tire I want to run. They should be the same as what I'm running now since the factories are 6.25 bs. The plan is to leave the spacers out of the setup. With these flat fenders and 33's the fenders are not even in the picture as far rubbing. You will have lots of fender clearance.
