I have a 99 sahara with 35 by 12.5 tires and a 6 inch jeep haas the factory axles and they are too week for the tires...I think...I would like to buy 33 inch tires for less stress...but I'm concerned how it will look with the 6 inch suspension lift.....could you guys send me pics of jeeps with 6 inch lifts and 33 inch tires....and advice...Thanks a million.

Take the money you are going to spend on new 33's and put that towards a different rear axle; assuming you have a dana 35. That's what I would do.
I don't know if you heard me counting, I did over a thousand.

I wouldn't run a 6" + lift on 33's, but that is just me.

You can upgrade axle shafts or find yourself a matched 44 (I am pretty sure your Sahara is 30/35). If you wheel your Jeep at all, which is amazing you haven't broken it yet, then I would concentrate on your axles anyway, seems like that is the weak spot. Maybe regear while you're in there for a little more pep. If you're on a budget start with shafts.
