Need a picture please

Does anyone have a pic for a Jk unlimited with a 3-4" lift and 33" tires. I have searched everywhere. Thx.

A 3” or 4” lift is going to be over kill for 33’s and IMO won’t “look right”. JK’s can fit 35’s with 2.5” lift, hell 37’s with 2.5” and flat fenders. Gone are the days of lifting a TJ 6” to fit 33’s. LOL

If you are dead set on 33’s then look at 2.5” lifts. If you are willing to go 35’s or more 2.5” to 3.5” will suffice. Be careful though as you approach the 3.5” – 4” mark you end up having to replace a lot of other components: drive shafts, control arms, track bars….

Oh an FYI, usually lifts sit higher than their posted numbers. IE Terflex 2.5" may sit at 3" of lift and so on. Sticking with a 2.5" and 33's will yield a great handling ride on and off road and have the Jeep "look" too. Check out the Rock Krawler 2.5" Stock Mod or if you have little more to spend then their 2.5" Flex System and so on.

Here you go....3" lift (OME HD coil spring lift) and running on 33x12.50R17 STT's with stock fenders....Looks great IMHO!






Just last week I installed BW Flats but flatties make the tires look like doughnuts now...BUT I am upgrading to 35's in the next week or so (tires are backordered).

3” is really pushing IMO with 33’s. Granted it is an opinion and everyone’s tastes are different. I, however, see Revyjku08’s rig and think it would look better with 35's. Now per him he is going 35's since installing the flat flares. If ever you think you'll want to go 35's or flat the flares then get 35's right off the bat and don't buy tires twice if you don't need to.

For reference I had a Teraflex 2.5” lift with 33’s. I sold the 33’s to a buddy and got my 35’s on 2.5” of lift, so that shows you my line of thinking.
