MabCab Thanks guys i appreciate your help!

02prove- I havent encountered any rub issues at all lock to lock on the street. It is close though. I havent had it flexed to check, but I'm sure we all know the answer there. I do not have wheel spacers so I am assuming my backspacing is enough to protect while flat on the ground.

The photo is the only I have on digits sorry about the kids and the angle, but you can kinda tell it sits pretty wide. when the wife gets home Ill shoot some more photos for my profile. The setup shown is full stock with 33s, but they only actually sit about 31.75 at 9/32 tread depth.

02Prove As long as you're not going to wheel it you shouldn't damage anything... The 33s are already on it so I'm wondering if you're having any rubbing issues when you turn?

MabCab 02prove- 2.5" suspension lift or BB with shocks? either way I do not have the extra cash on hand for that. What I really want is the OME Heavy 2.5 SL.

I am never in a twisted situation I will take smooth dirt roads only until its right.
Right know its a DD.

With my OP in mind should I encounter any other adjustments I should make?

02Prove If it's still on the stock suspension you can add a 2.5" lift along with your body lift and MML and be fine with the 33s. You will still get into for fenders a bit at full flex but proper bumpstop length will cure that.

I'm planning on the same set up to run 33s on mine with the 2.5" lift.

First picture is 1 1/4 bl with 1" spacer in front with 33"s. Second pix is 3 1/4" RC with bl no spacer and 33"s Hope this helps.
Ok. The 1.75 spacer up front leveled mine perfectly, I too have 33s on my rig, but not by choice, i purchased with them on. So without the money to buy the correct lift for the tire size I am doing what I can. Did you have any steering adjustments to make? Bumpstops, etc? or any other issues?

Thanks for the help.

NEWB Budget Lift?

Hello All, I am planning on installing a JKS 1.25'' BL with a JKS 1''MML on my 02 TJ. I currently have Rubi Express 1.75'' coil spacers up front to level out my bad factory rake.

So I am wandering if I will encounter any steering issues or should I make some adjustments?

Any other thoughts or issues with the compatibility or quality on the above mentioned?

THX
