Have been throwing around a lot of ideas for my TJ lately, and one of them is eventually fitting 33s under her(Thinking BFG A/T, GY Duratracs or some super swampers). Though i'm wondering how i'd go about this... First idea was a 2" coil spacer BB(Maybe a coil spring replacement if money allows at the time), then 1.25" body lift. with proper bump-stop adjustments, is that enough to clear 33s? If so, due to my finances, i'd like to do it in stages. That's where my heavier questioning comes in(Sorry, i hate to contribute to the slue of lift/tire topics!)
For 33s i'm sure i'd need to get aftermarket wheels. So that would be the biggest out-the-door expense. But it's also what i would like to do first... If possible. This is where part of my confusion comes in.
What do over-sized tires do to a stock jeep? Do they just rub the hell out of your fenders if you flex too much? I'm assuming there's more to that. Or else i could just not off-road until i get my lift.
If i could get them on with stock or a 2" lift, how much flex could i get away with either of them? I do hardly any off-roading. At the moment, i only use my Jeep to play around in the woods around my area. No official trail riding yet. So she's not worked too hard in terms of suspension. She does, however make 20 minute trips at 70 MPH on the interstate to and back from work on a daily basis.
Also, is it wise to interchange lifts to different Jeeps if you know they were done properly? Another idea/possible plan of mine is to sell my TJ and buy one from down south. The tires i know i can take off the nicer ones, put on the old ones, and then sell it. But is it wise to do this with lifts? Also, if i can get away with it, i probably wouldn't want to install the 1.25 body lift on my current jeep due to bad body bolt mount rust(I could upload pictures, but it's best you just take my word for it. It's bad). I also have a concern about my rear coil spring buckets being too rusty for lifting... How much is too much?
Forgive my ignorance on a lot of this, i know my situation isn't an extremely unique one. But it's difficult to piece together information from here and there to see if my idea will work, in the order i'd like it to work. Thanks for you time!
