Lift spces

So I want to go to a 32 or 33 with my 2000 TJ once my 31s wear out. I have a 2" BB with 3.73 gearing and only the Dana 30 axles. I like to wheel Moab, but I am not extreme when I go there as this is my dailiy driver. Can I get away with this as it is or will I need a body lift and motor mount lift?

That's pretty much my setup. Don't disconnect, and trim your flares and you shouldn't have much trouble at all. Mine gets wheeled, and I've not had any issues, as long as you realize your limitations.

really? im already at 15 mpg, what are you getting?

Here is my Jeep with a 2" BB and 31" tires. I have 3.73 axles with an auto tranny. I want to go to 32s or 33s when these wear out, but I worry about the highway driving as it is my DD. The 31s are pretty decent, but I wonder what the 3.1415" of circumference will do to the pick up or I wonder if I will ever even notice.Click image for larger version

You only have a 1.25 body lift. Did you use any wheel spacers. I have the same rims and was thinking about doing the 33x10.5x15 BFG AT after doing a zone 4" lift. Do you have any rubbing when you turn or are off road?

I did get wheel spacers because the fronts would rub on the sway bar when I turned too far in either direction. The spacers helped a bunch and it only rubs now when I'm full to lock on either side, but not too bad though.

I haven't been able to go off road since I put them on. I was sent to FL from IL for 6 months a couple weeks after putting them on and I haven't found a place to go here that's not just mud.

EDIT: Here is is in Moab with the stock 30's and no lift, so I'm almost positive the 33's will rub. I'm contemplating a 2.5" RE Long Arm Kit and Hi-lining the hood though.
