I agree with you 100%. But if someone's never gonna take it off road what's the point of getting 33's?

I've run 33's for over a year with lots of trips off road.....no problem, but remember I'm open front & rear, lockers will add stress to the axles

hardy1531 yea a grand at a time is correct! i went with 31s for that reason too. I think in the long run I will be better off

eprovenzano I decided to go with 31's since its only a 4 banger, and I'm trying to keep some decent gas mileage... (or as much as I can in a Jeep)

I'm still running the original shocks. They will be changed when the extra cash is available. I'm holding of on the shocks until after I get new tires. The tires will be purchased in about 2-3 months. Currently running 30 x 9.5 planning on 31 x 10.5.

Jeeps are a disease, once you start to modify, its hard to stop. Unfortunately this disease is one that keeps your wallet empty...
you'll have plenty of clearance for 32's
