Why do you need 33s?? This is why ...

Quick Question! I don't want to start another "Will they fit" thread
I have a 2" Suspension Lift and 31x10.5 right now, which seem small on this setup. If i had a 1" Body lift, will i be able to fit 33's?
Thanks and sorry for hijacking this thread

Yes. But you'll have to adjust your bumpstops so your tires won't destroy your flares. That setup doesn't allow too much room to flex. If your Jeep is a mall crawler and doesn't see much time offroad, then you'll be ok. If you actually use this Jeep offroad, you probably won't be too happy with the performance of that combo.

I'm not doing rock climing or other extreme things, but i really love the mud and off road trips in the mountains. So i think i'll stick with my actual setup. Better for my ride and for my Wallet

Good because 3" (2" suspension plus 1" BL) isn't enough to run 33" tires effectively without rubbing unless you cripple the suspension with extra tall bumpstops.

I am thinking RC's 3.25" Suspension and 1╝" Body Lift. Will that be a good setup (other than being rough) for these 33s? I do not want to get into SYE and all that ...

That would work though I don't believe there's any reason to pay extra $$$ for an extra .25" on a body lift when the Performance Accessories 1" BL is great quality for less $$$.

Got any pics of you offroading this setup?

There is a difference between having this setup and using this setup.

I went from 31s to 33s with a 2BB and 1.25BL and I'm expecting to eat my flares at the Meet and Greet in March. Woo Hoo.

I trust that plenty of pics will be forthcoming?

I'm extremely jealous that I don't get to join you guys/gals for this year's M&G.

I run a 2" BDS suspension lift supplemented with a 1.25" JKS body lift on my Sahara. I do not rub at all at full flex but that may also be due to the wider Sahara flares or that my 33s are 10.5 wide .

I can go offroad nothing too extreme but I can go on trails. It doesnt rub as bad as you think just at full turn.

Opinons please.

So I own a 2004 TJ X. I am over seas and heading home this week. I had a 2.5 inch suspension lift installed while I was gone. They were going to add the inch and a quarter spacers but said I already had some on there. ( I did not know this) I fit 31x 10.5 Toyo MT on there before I had RC 2.5 suspension lift. I want to upgrade to 33's when I get home. Doesn't sound like a problem does it?

I'm not rock crawling. Its a DD and light offroading.

Thanks!

Really? I thought for sure you could run a 2" BB and a 1.25" BL and only using say the extended bump stops that come with the RE BB. I thought that setup could clear 33's no problem offroad.

I have 33' bfg at's with a 4 inch lift, i think yours fit because they're not actually 33'

Mine say 33' but they only measure 31.5'

You probably have the same problem.

Hey watchit with the comments about those little tires.

My Thumper says it isn't the size....its how you use them!

(Of course, inwardly we are jealous of those of you with modified suspensions and big tires.)

Let me say this about that. I have a 2" spring lift and 1 1/4" BL, and I did add a 3/4" spacer to the front to level it. I have 33s on 4" BS wheels and added 1/2" to the front bumpstop and 1 1/2" to the rear via hockey pucks on the spring perches. I trimmed about and inch or so off the flares and I do not rub at all even at full flex. That set up works well off road with 33s with a little tweaking.

I leaned it against my Harbor Freight aluminum truck box with a couple 2x4s added to space it away so it fully opens. Then I just used a ratchet strap to secure it. A cable lock keeps thieves thinking twice.
