|Armadaskier||I have the superlift 2" budget/spacer lift installed. I didn't lose any mpg when I had it with my stock tires. It is a great way to fit bigger tires and add some looks. I also did the stubby bumper conversion which was super easy and looks great. I am adding wheels/spacers and 34" tires next.|

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

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.

|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?|

Echo, take a look at a budget or leveling kit, that way you are golden and won't have to worry about any rub. I just picked up a teraflex 1.5 inch leveling kit that adds 2 inches in front and 1 in rear as well as removes the rake in the default stance of the JKU. They are 127 from qtec. 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.

|XJ Knight||RHD JKU.. Interesting. Built for mail delivery where it snows alot and paved roads are obscure?|

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

Yea, thats what i am thinking of if I go the aftermarket route.
|09-17-2011 11:57 PM|
Xj got it right on.
get 33x12.5x15s on some cheap rims and be done.
|09-17-2011 11:55 PM|
|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.|

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)

|EchoThruMe||So for a mostly on roader new wheels with correct backspacing and 33's will work fine?|

|drob||2011 Sport with 285/75-16's and no lift.|
|09-17-2011 11:00 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|

|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 10:52 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.|
