Anyone run 6inch lift with 33s?! Pictures please!!

Looking at lift kits and a 6inch isnt much more then a four.. so im thinking to go with the 6, but i have a d30 and d35 so dont want to go bigger then 33 until i can save money for some rubi take offs or something. Thanks.

6" isnt much bigger than 4? Maybe price. I ran 4.5" on 32's and the only reason it doesnt look goofy is cause my bushwacker flares are really low clearance. I also have an sye, extended brake lines, custom short arms and a lot more to make it work well. 6" you'll need all that and long arms instead.

It ain't as simple as just slapping 6" on bro...your talking some serious consideration and $$$ for very little return on investment. What are you going to be doing with your Jeep? Might want to do a search on the forum for LCOG....

Yeah i understand pretty well what it all takes, the six inch im looking at is 2000 with a cv shaft and sye. Then another grand in tires. And i know the d35 is weak thats why i was asking for pics of a 6 with 33s. I wouldn't want to run 35s until i had the cash to pick up some rubi 44s. I understand its a good 3500 maybe more. Just wanted some pics of anyone had them. Thanks anyway

your missing our point duder, there are other ways of achieving 6" lift or fitting 35's in general. Safer, and better.
you "generally" wont find pics of 6" and 33's simply because people don't run 33's with that much lift.

a 5 second google search got this (6" and 33's) for what its worth..

You dont need to hold out for rubicon d44's. Your dana 30 front will be ok with 35's. Maybe consider a ford 8.8 swap for the rear. If you really want the 6" get it guess. Just remember to go out in width with your wheels. Try and keep it stable. That look and amount of lift is out of style these days. I myself would recommend highline fenders and half that amount of lift. Keeping your angles of everything to a minimum is smart. And a low COG is the new style. 6" of lift will be unstable on serious off camber situations.

Agreed
Agreed
Disagree. 33's are fine on a d35. I ran 33's for a few years and never blew it up once. I also beat the hell out of that jeep.

Heres mine with 33's and a little lift. Stock D30 and D35 never had a problem. I pull 12 ton creep feeders up out of some bad places in the cow pastures with this Jeep and I take it to the mudhole almost every weekend. Yes one day it might break, when it does I'll fix it and maybe upgrade some stuff.

How is it not safe? I drive this Jeep 62 round trip miles every day, then work it hard all day and go mudding in it on the weekends. I have absolutely no sway or body roll whatsoever. I can and do spin donuts with it when I get a wild hair up my ... Maybe its how the Rough Country lift was properly installed or it might have something to do with the driver knowing how to control his machine.

Don't listen to him. If your jeep drives good for you barefoot cowboy that's what matters. I believe this thread was about 6" lift and 33's not body lift bash session. Just saying.

I run a 5.5" long arm on 35s with stock d30 and d35 axles. Sure the axles arnt the strongest but they will hold up to the 35s. I've had mine on for a year with no prob. I do trails and mud just fine. You just can't beat the hell out of it. Bad drivers break things most the time.
