Why not?

My jeep has a 2 inch body lift with 32" tires. I want to put black craggers on it with 33" tires. Why can't I do this? I do not go rock crawling or anything like that, mainly just some mudding in fields and whatever snow the midwest gets. Is it possible to put the above on my jeep without messing with the lift?

My Jeep has a 2" body lift and I run 33's. You only get rubbing when you turn fully.

Bad, get some 1-1.5" spacers and slap them on top of the stock coils.. 27ish bucks a pair so about 50 bucks... dont even mess with the shocks just reuse the stockers. That will give you some more space for those 33s.

The guy I bought this jeep from put the two inch body lift on it and replaced the shocks with a brand called " Old E?????" I can't remember right now. If I put the spacers on will that eliminate the rub when I turn all the way?

old man emu probably.... no it will not solve the rubbing issue, that can be solved by getting rims with different backspacing or adjusting your turnstops, which if you use the search function, there should be a thread or writeup on it somewhere around here..

No it will not, smaller back spacing rims will get rid of it though (smaller bs meaning tires will stick out more). If they rub only while you turn, adjust the bump stops a bit and you'll be all set.
