I'm runing 32's with my 3.5 springs and have PLENTY of room for 33's, and my 32's don't "goofy" under it... so 33's with a 1"BL as well should look about the same.

i'd take the body lift out if I were you.

my 3.5 RE lift clears my 33's easy, with room to spare.

Or you can keep the body lift, do some minor trimming on the fenders and fit 35's

the BL doesn't affect the COG very much and IMO it would be a waste of effort to take the BL off.

plus it should look fine...AZTJ's jeep looks good. should look similar tire clearance wise.

2.5" OME (in real 3.25") and 2" BL and 32s. it looks goofy:

4.88 is not the problem. but 37s are. if a tire spins and has grip very fast it can damage some axle parts.

the d35 is a bigger probem than the d30. i saw braking axle shafts on d35s, but never on D30s with 35" tires. but all that only happened off the road when a guy gets stuck and he tried to escape with full throttle.

I had 31's with RE 3.5" and 1" body lift . I actually dug the look

it was like a mini version of a TJ on 8" of coilovers and 37s. lol. proportionally of course

I didn't mind if it looked odd... its a jeep thing and it wheeled great!

if your not doing hardcore wheeling then why do you need 37's?
