Talking 03 Rubi lift

i just recently purchased a 03rubicon off of my parents. this will be the second wrangler i've owned. i have been wheeling in the rubi several times last summer. Its now time for some tires, so i figured i go with some bigger tires, so here are my plans.
33x12.50 baja claws on 15x10 rockkrawlers with 4in. B.S.
2in. R.E. buget boost
swaybar disconnects
how good of a setup is this gonna be. i do some pretty good wheeling, how bad is this gonna rub. im also thinkin about added a 1in. body lift. any input would be appriciated. thanks

with the 2" BB and a 1'' BL you should be ok to run 33's, but you're gonna rub. you could be shredding your flares, rubbing control arms at full turn, etc. i'd probly go with something like a RE 3.5'' lift(the standard kit is about 600) and then still add the 1'' BL. i think it'll be a happier set-up if you plan on doing some hard wheeling.

H2,

I see your in the Cincy area.. great..now as far as lift and tires.. as stated by Khederson, you will rub.. Save up, get a 4 inch lift, RE 3.5 is a great pic.(closer to 4") and if you need more room get a 1" body lift. You may need a new rear driveshaft but not sure. As for tires.. not a big fan of the claws, they are directional, so things like rotation and spare swap are a PITA they wear very fast, and are undersized. I have driven with them off road on a buddies jeep did okay.. but I would look at something else. BFG MT, Trxus MT, Goodyear MTR, if your doing some daily driving and trail mix.
