You can easily run 33s with either wheel spacers or different offset rims. I ran 285/65/18s on Sahara rims with no lift and had minimal rubbing at full steering lock. It was fine otherwise.

Here's my 2" lift report with pictures.

Thanks.

It did change the mileage a little bit (+/- 1 MPG), mainly because leveling it out changed the aerodynamics slightly and my winter tires are heavier than the stock tires and they are studded.

What's wrong with the e disconnect?

I forgot that i got more incidents and occasions on camera if you want to see those as well...I found them going through my camera whoore of 3 photobucket accounts.
If a suspension is set up wrong, you can't blame it on the sway bar. Those pics show The links are too short, and let them "cam over", which bends them like a pretzel. After lifting your JK, you should ramp it to make sure your link and sway bar aren't forming a straight line, but still have a bend at full droop. An easy way to do this is make sure your sway bar is about 8-12 degrees up while the jeep is level. This will ensure at full droop, you will still have about 20 degrees left before camming over and bending the link. I've used the e sway since my jeep was new, and at 149 miles it was lifted. Now at 47000 miles, no sway bar issues whatsoever. Now I'm going to an AntiRock because I'm going to 60s and coil overs.
