TJ OME Lift w/Rear Spring Relocator Kit

A little background: My TJ is my DD that takes me to fishing holes on the weekends.

I am looking at the DPG Ultimate OME TJ lift system without the body lift but want to run 33 x 12.5 tires. No body lift no 33" tires. To get the clearance for 33" tires I am thinking of combining the OME lift with AEV spring relocator kit and front 2" coil spacer set. I believe this will give me the clearance I need as I will add approximately 1 5/8" to the OME lift.

With this combination I think I will also need adjustable upper rear control arms, SYE and CV driveshaft.

Of course another option is to go with 3" springs instead of the AEV stuff.

I would like to know if anyone uses this setup or something like it. I would also appreciate other suggestions. The bottom line for me is I want LCG and 33" tires. Is that asking too much

Thanks for any advice.

AEV spring relocators is way overkill for going to the fishing hole on the weekends. and adding 2" coil spacers on top of OME's lift springs is just a bad idea - look up something called coil bind.

you can fit 33s on a 2.5" OME lift with a 1.25" BL, and 1.3" front and rear bumpstop extensions. I do, and no coil spacers or spring relocation involved.
