Yea we cant make them take our advice. All we can do is give the best advice we can and hopefully they will take it. Sometimes we even get lucky and get a THANK YOU.

it'll be funny if he takes this attitude and question to any other jeep forum. this is the friendliest one i have found and there are a decent amount of people that actually like the RC lifts. I wonder how badly he'll get flamed elsewhere on the interwebs. and to top it all off, the answers and knowledge was there, if you're too dense for this place, i say good luck, you're gonna need it

Listen, there have been a few times where users with more knowledge have gotten on my nerves, but that doesn't mean they don't know their stuff. They just need to work on their delivery lol! That being said, I've learned enough from this forum that I'm starting to know my stuff and that is all because I've paid attention. Even when I disagree!

Well since he started the RC questions but didn't listen I was hoping you guys could help me out a little. I've got that same lift and it's not near the best but it's ok for the light wheeling I'm doing while I'm in school. I'm running 4.10 gears and I'm wanting to upgrade to 33's until I pay the jeep off and then I'm gonna switch the lift and start trimming sheet metal. What kind of wheel spacers and steering setup do you guys suggest to run 33s on the 3.25?

Stock steering should be ok with 33's, especially in the 10.5" wide variety, but upgrading to a v8 so tie rod or crown steering would be cheap and easy.

If you decide on 33x10.5, the stock rims should be fine. If you're going 33x12.5, a set of 1.5" spacers should do the trick

You bet. Im real happy with these tires. They dont make a butt load of noise on the pavement and they really do well in the dirt. Ive only had them in the mud once, and not on the rocks yet.

Oh, one drawback is they are heavier than hell, one of the heaviest tires per size on the market. I like to think of it as more traction, lol.

Yeah I was looking at that unfortunately I've only got the four cylinder right now I plan on doing a diesel swap in a couple years but once I pay it off its going to be a designated trail rig anyway . I might have to bite the bullet and go for some lighter tires for right now but I really like those general grabbers

Could research for light wheels, its what I did. Kinda help compensate for the additional rotating mass.

weight was one of the things that drove me to duratracs to begin with, the quality traction in almost any environment is what got me to buy a second set

In that case I might just get those in 33s for now since I only do mainly light wheeling an upgrade to the grabbers when I get out of school

I started with the rough country 3.25" a few years ago and wish I had just saved my money and waited till I could afford better quality parts. Anyway you said the RC lift was a done deal so no use beating a dead horse. You can run 33" tires with that lift as long as you not going off road with it. If you decide to start off roading you will probably want to install a 1.25" body lift to gain some extra clearance. Here are some pics of my tj with various lift and tire sizes for reference.

2" budget boost 31" tires


2" budget boost 33" tires

Everyone knows that you have to have enough body lift to work on your entire frame without taking the body off!
