also reading up, 33"s should have a 4" lift right?
reading all the stickies, i hopped across the DW scene! this is scary?! idk if i wanna lift it now....
i mean, how common is it? will a good buy save me from the DW?
sounds dangerous, idk now lol.
If everything is done right you'll be ok. And people have cramed 33's under stock jeeps but you wouldn't want to hit a pebble with it. And it depends on the lift and the type of use for the size tire to use with a particular lift. Also the backspace of the rim. Some lifts will give a recomended rim back space and tire size to go with it in the directions. You can view the directions on some websites before you buy the lift.
Death wobble can be corrected. I believe that a quality install is a better deterent over DW than an expensive lift kit with shoddy work during the install. If you are currently running 33s, you may already have a suspension lift. A body lift is easy to spot. There will be spacers between the frame and the body of the Jeep. Most people will tell you to try to aviod anything over 1 inch body lift.
Welcome to the forum and I look forward to the pics.
Easy there tiger . Take a deep breath lol. You probably have a lift, most likely a 3in or 4in. Congrats on the jeep btw welcome to the forum. Looking forward to checking out new JEEP. Remember it is a jeep NOT a car or suv truck it acceptable and RIG is the best! If you call your jeep one of the none approved names well bad things of karma happen.
Know nothing SPEAK on everything

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
Well, it looks like you already have what is called a Budget Boost by the looks of those spacers between the coil spring and the top of where it usually sits. That would be what is allowing you the 33" tires. I think the body part looks like stock.
If you want to get more height, I would say to move to a regular spring lift and remove the budget boost. If it is done properly, and with decent parts, it will ride as good or better than stock.
I'm guessing that you have a 2" budget boost or spacer lift and that's it. From what I can see it doesn't look like you have a body lift. This is a bit low for 33" tires and you should either have a 4" suspension or add a 1" BL if I guessed correctly as to your current set up. What do you want to accomplish? Are you looking for something to take offroad or more of a cool looking onroad Jeep?
