More Tire Questions

OK, I have a '99 Sahara with a 2" lift and factory alloy wheels.

I have a few thousand miles left on my BFG 31x10.5's.

I am trying to get an idea of replacements and would like to go as tall as possible without doing any more lift. A couple of weeks ago I asked about the Super Swamper TSL 34x9.5 on here. Answers came that they were too tall for my 2" lift.

My next question is about how tall has anybody gone (with a similiar setup) without causing any problems?

I want tires that are good all around, this is my DD. Need good for on/offroad, rain, snow, pavement, etc.

Right now, specifically looking at BFG 33x9.5's or 33x10.5's, anybody have them? How did they work out? Pics would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Here is a pic of my Jeep the day I bought and like it looks today...

there was a jeep in my old city that ran a BB and a 1'' BL with 33x9.50's. i never decided if i liked them or not cause they seemed really tall and not very wide. another thing to think about, not just if you can fit them, but how your jeep will be affected as far as loss of power will taller tires.

Here is a pic of my Jeep the day I bought and like it looks today...

im runnin 32's with no lift so with your 2 inches of lift that equals 2 inches more clearance which means 2 inches bigger than 32 which would be a 34" tire...and i only rub at full flex...but i would still go with just 33's anyway just because i've heard swampers can be really rough on the road and wear fast and it'll give ya a little more clearance...BTW i was searching car domain the other day and came across a wrangler with 2" BB and 33x10.50's on the stock wheels...i can dig up his profile with the pics if you'd like
