sounds good to me, many people will recommend a 4 inch lift if you want 33s to fit properly, but they will fit, just not a lot of room to flex but since yours is a DD you will be fine

actually he'll rub the fenders (the steel fenders, not the flares). he'll need 2" front and rear bumpstop extensions to fit 33s with that lift. or he'll need to add a 1" Body Lift, then he would only need 1" front bumpstop extension, and 1.25" rear bumpstop extension.

I was looking into either the 3.25 or the 3.75 Combo. I heard body lifts increase body roll and aren't very good.... which sucks cause I was ready to buy it

I say this everyday, but once again...lift height is not correlated to tire size. Bumpstop height is. If you don't change the distance from the hub center to the steel fender, regardless of static lift height, you can't fit larger tires than 31s. If the shocks are longer than 13.5", then you need to add bumpstop to prevent them from bottoming out. 15.5" shocks will act as 2" bumpstops, but not in a good way.

So - Whats his collapsed shock length? Post pics of his front axle at full bump, at full flex of both sides, with the springs removed & the shocks connected.

You sticking with the stock wheels?

Some inexpensive Soft 8s with 4" b.s. will allow you to run 33x12.50 with that lift and have no rubbing issues at all. We only run 2" pucks on our 2001 Sport and don't have any rubbing issues on or off-road.

With the b.s. of stock wheels, I would suspect you might rub at full turn but the fender rubbing mentioned above is an unknown to me.

You will need spacers or different wheels for a 12.5" wide tire. The rear spring perches will eat your tires on stock wheels... As for the lift fitting the tire size, yeah it'll be fine, but extended bumpstops would be a very good thing to do. Unlimited04 has all the lowdown on that stuff...

You need a wider tire for a 10" wheel, imo. An 8" wheel would be a much better fit for a 10.5" tire.

easy fella, i completely believe you and understand what your saying, i have no pictures of his rig, he ran a RC 2.5" lift and 31s, but had a set of 33s he threw on for offroading, the day i went with him was the first day he'd put the 33s on, i have no clue if he did anything to the bumpstops or not
