Pictures of 33's with 1.25 BL?

Put on 33's running stock suspension yesterday. Just ordered a 1.25 zone bl. I was wondering if anyone has pictures of 33's with 1.25 bl. I did a search and couldnt find anything so figured id see if id get lucky on here.

Not a good idea. Stick with 31's or 32's till you can get a 2.5" lift

Just do a google image search for "TJ with tires that are way too big and stuffed clear up into the fenders and can't be driven because they constantly rub and will soon destroy themselves and everything they hit".
You should be able to determine how it's going to look.

I ran 33" Duratracs on a 2" BB for one day before I installed my 1.25" BL. It was close and I wouldn't do it again. At 3/4" closer with just a BL, I definitely wouldn't do that.

Here it is with just the BB and 33s to show you how little clearance I had. I drove to work, then home to install the BL that came in the mail that day.


And this was after the BL was installed. It wasn't long before I dropped the front BB for ZJ springs to get more clearance up front.

I have been running that setup for about 15 months now. You can check out my "Garage" for some pics. No rubbing so far.

33's are fit in two common ways on TJ's:

1. 4" suspension lift, with ~2" bumpstop extensions in front and ~2.5" in the rear. Requires a SYE/CV shaft.
2. 2.5" suspension lift, with a 1.25" body lift, with ~1-1.25" bumpstop extensions in front and ~1.25-1.5" in the rear. The 1.25" BL usually accompanies a 1" Motor Mount Lift to offset some of the driveline angles.

Either way you go, figure on some or many of the following components: longer front brake lines, extended sway bar links front and rear, gears, brake and steering upgrades to accommodate larger tires, SYE, CV shaft, bumpstop extensions, new shocks, adjustable track bars, and a rear track bar bracket.

Just curious, do you have this just permanently written in your computer and copy and paste it every time you need it? It's very helpful info regardless. I know it helped me when deciding on a lift and accessories to go with it.

^ Lol. This is brutally honest

OP - general rule of thumb for proper clearance is every inch of lift u add, u can add an inch of tire size. So usually u need about 3" of lift to properly run 33s. U can always stuff big tires in to a small area but you are asking for issues and not getting the full potential of the tires.
Plus IMO I like the look of proper clearance in the wheel wells.

Fair enough. I figured out all I needed using google without making one post.

Flat flares =/= flat fenders i.e. tube fenders or MCE. In his sig he also has a 4" suspension lift so that's a big contributing factor

I have yet to install the 4". That pic is all stock suspension. It's just flat fenders with 1" body on 33/12.50r15s

Off topic, but flexed out at Tierra Del Sol this past weekend my little 31's were lighly rubbing the pinch on the upper fender where the flair mounts. I have a 1" spring lift as well as a 1.25" BL, for a 2.25" gain above the axle. I was thinking add a 3/4" spacer I have and going 33's but may have to stick to 32's. I could also add bump stops to eliminate some up travel, but I like some high speed stuff too.

That's an excellent reason to install proper bump stops..

Yes don't buy 33s with a 1" body lift and expect to conquer a comp rock course. But I do use my jeep and I do rub when flexed out. Hints why I have a 4" that I'm about to install. But once it's on I'm going to 35s.

hi there i got 33x10.5x15 as a right now im all stock and i dont have any problems rubin anything, but i would like to level my front end since is lower then the rear. im not doing any wheeling for now just want to level the front with rear.any ideas of what type of set up i should run? fprgot to mention the 33x10.5x15 is my tire size but my wheels are 15x8. i guess thats why i dont have any rubbin on the fenders when i turn, but i would like to get me different wheels like some 15x10.5 so my tires look more wider.

Why is your front lower then your rear? You have extra weight in the front?
