33's need about ~2" bumpstop extension in front and rear. 1" BL will subtract 1" off that bumpstop extension requirement, provided the shock length is correct.

33's are fit in 2 common ways:
1. 4" suspension lift, with 2" front bumpstop extension, and ~2.5" rear.
2. 2.5" suspension lift, with 1" BL, with 1" front bumpstop extension and 1.25-1.5" rear.

Alternatively, you could move the fenders...like the AEV highline kit, or DIY Aussie fender lift...with stock suspension.

That makes sense. But then how is Infernogirl running 33's on 2" of lift?

thats nonsense. nothing wrong with a BB, when used with stock springs, if its properly installed and you have the proper bumpstop extensions installed.

Well what about the 3.75" Rough Country body and suspension combo lift? I was thinking of getting that one or the 3.25" lift with springs and spacers.

If you consider that "fits" is a very loose term, and if you don't understand or care if stuff works properly, then you can fit anything you want

or she's got 2" bumpstops front and rear, like I described.

read here: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/corr...gth-70047.html

here's how you test full bump to make sure you're shocks and suspension components clear:


here's what a 33 looks like at full bump (both sides compressed fully), with 1-3/8" bumpstop and a 1" BL


here's that same tire at full flex (one side fully compressed, and the other side fully drooped)


^that works. for real.

I just bought this BB off eBay: DAYSTAR KJ09103BK 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler 1 3/4" LIFT - eBay (item 220744181731 end time Mar-09-11 07:11:16 PST)

$85 shipped seemed like a good price for a Daystar kit with bump stops so I said why the heck not. Amazon wants $130 for the exact same kit. I'm never going to change to a larger tire than my 31's so I think a 1.75" is going to be perfect. I'll make sure to post before and after pics!
