Good to know. I always need to keep in mind mpg. Looks like the small lift is in my future.

EchoThruMe I just thought the height may add drag. Let me know how it goes.

DonC72 I have yet to slap it on. I am getting my sump pump replaced tomorrow then I can free up time to get to it. I won't pop it on until I am ready to bolt it all together. Plus, if I order the wheels before the needed house fix, I'd be effed.

I don't expect any impact, it's a bunch of hockey pucks.
09-19-2011 06:38 PM
EchoThruMe @DonC72 I just found the kit. Nice and cheap. How does your jeep ride after the lift and did you take a hit to your mpg?

Just gives it more clearance with keeping with the stock ride. JUST something to consider.

Plus, if you go with no lift on 33's, you can always get a stubby fender chop kit, which is easy to do, and runs about 65 pr so bucks. Might give you peace of mind if you were worried about front rub when turned fully.

Good luck!
Thanks! Ill take a look at that leveling kit.

aelwero wish I'd had taken pics of what happens when you go wheeling on em, but I did not...

I DID take a picture of 33" tires on 15" black steel with no lift


And pictures of how you can keep said tires on no lift AND be able to off road it, by whacking some plastic off the fenders...



Edit- BTW, the 33X12.5 tires with no lift will also make it a little less inclined to lay over widens the footprint with minimal rise on the CoG

EchoThruMe I was hoping to go with 15's to save on rubber costs. Thanks for the numbers though. I will go check em out.
09-17-2011 10:18 PM
XJ Knight Your options to my knowledge for something close to a 33 in a 16in rim
255/85/16 = 33/10/16 (doesn't require new wheels)
285/75/16 = 33/11/16 (will require new wheels)
305/70/16 = 33/12/16 (will require new wheels)
09-17-2011 10:08 PM
XJ Knight Correct
09-17-2011 10:04 PM
EchoThruMe So for a mostly on roader new wheels with correct backspacing and 33's will work fine?
09-17-2011 10:04 PM
drob 2011 Sport with 285/75-16's and no lift.
09-17-2011 10:00 PM
XJ Knight no lift is needed for 33's on the JK/JKU. 2in is needed on the TJ/LJ. What you will need to do with 33's however is either by spacers from somewhere like spidertrax (last resort) or get new wheels (recomended) with the proper amount of back spacing for a wider tire that 33's or in your case around the metric equivalant will have
09-17-2011 09:57 PM
C.L. I don't have pics, but will throw my lot in with the lift crowd. You MAY be able to stuff 33" tires into the wheel well of an unlifted JK, but it is going to destroy your fender/flares if you try to take it offroad.
09-17-2011 09:52 PM
EchoThruMe Yea, this is the issue I have been running into. Some say no lift is needed while others say it is. Looking to see what an unlifted 33" JK looks like if its possible.

i have a 2.5'' suspension with 33's... but i like the way it looks, i think it fills it out better.
You do not need a lift to run 33s on a JK. I don't have any pics because mine's lifted with em.
