Max lift running 33's

what's the most you should lift your rig if your running 33's. I currently have a 4" rc lift was thinking of adding another inch or so of body lift. What is the general opinion on this subject. Pictures would be helpful!

Imo that would be plenty for 33.
I'm running 4" zone suspension and 1.25" body on 35s

you can run 33s with 15" of lift if you want. it's your Jeep, as long as it's setup properly & safely in terms of axle position, suspension geometry, brakes, steering, shocks, bumpstops, sway bars, brake lines, etc, go nuts.

I would think just a 15"BL would be enough myself if the tires are plastidipped

4" is ideal for 33" tires, I wouldn't bother adding a body lift.
