|Side_Project||33 no lift I would say you can but not a good idea. You can always take and trim your fender flares I took 2 inches off mine looks great and much more room. I am sure some where on this site there is a thread on how to do it.|

|fatmanny1901||I'm looking at getting new wheels for my stock 2011 Sport JKU. I most likely don't have enough to get the wheels, tires and lift that I want so would it be decent to, instead of getting 35" tires, get 33" tires and just a levelling kit? Possible flat fenders?|

Less lift more cutting!!!!!
I've been running OME 2.5" 1" BL and 33's for two years. No prob. adjust bumpstops and go. I have wheeled it in very hard places, Rocks..not mud.
This winter it's no extra lift and 36 Iroks. Addition of MC fenders are my ticket for that.
What I'm getting at, is there are 100 ways to skin a cat. My cat needed skinned in a Offroad fashion. yours may not.

|jeffro1965||I did the 2.25 budget lift with 32's. Got it up off the tires. Under a hundred bucks.|

I just got 33x12.50 installed about a week ago and rub when I go over speedbumps ect. The new tires looked too aggressive to not take it offroading so I went on a few trails and only rubbed a little bit! However, I am ordering a 1.25" BL and 1.75" BB within the next week cause I can't stand how close my front tires come to the flares.
Below is a picture of my 33s with no lift

|Manalive67||You can go off-road with the 33's on a stock suspension. Just pick your path or maybe I'm the only one on here who actually believes that.|

|Neil F.||Mine came from the previous owner with 33x12.5 on Americam Racing Baja wheels, 1 1/4 BL and Bushwhacker 6" flare. I ran like that for over two years and did not rub on anything.I used it through light trails and decent dips and holes. I recently added a 2" BDS.|

2 inch budget boost and 1 inch body lift will do you fine for 33's.
But I will be honest with you, save the $600 bills or so and get the Full Traction 3" suspension lift, you will not be disappointed - Trust me. Look at my sig.

|dkswift||I just asked this last night, though your title was more clear. I'm lookin at the RC lift as well. No rocks to crawl here in Orlando (except the occasional parking curb) so it looked like a good option for the mud. Hoping to order it this week (maybe I can get my car sold and get the tires too)|
|06-08-2010 06:45 PM|
|KBR97||why dont you just get a budget boost. You can run 32s and a 2 or 2.5 in budget boost with no problem. I had 32s on my TJ with no lift and took it wheeling on some good trails.|

I installed the RC 3.25 combo kit last week. It came with the 2.5" springs, 3/4" spacers, RC 2.2 shocks, new sway bar links, rear trac bar relocator, and a TC drop.I only put the 3/4" spacers in the front because I wanted it to sit level. I haven't put the TC drop in yet. Its dropped right now with a couple of washers and that seems to be doing the trick. The TC drop that came with the kit looks to be over and inch and I don't think I need to drop it that far.
As far as ride quality goes, it rides better then the 2" skyjacker BB with hydro 7000 shocks did. Its a little bouncy but Ive heard the same about lifts that cost 5 times as much as my RC kit did. For the money it seems to be a great kit. If you look in my profile you can see what 33x12.5s look like with a 2" BB but I havnt added pics of the RC lift yet.
On a related note I have a skyjacker 2" BB with hydro 7000 shocks and bump stop extenders for sale.
$75 + S&H

|jwm1986||I like the RC 2.5" springs personally. I bought the OME Heavy Duty kit. But after taking off the hard top and spare it got too light and the ride was very harsh. I'm running the RC 2.5" springs now with a 3/4" spacer in the front and really like it. Ride has much improved, although a tad bouncy on some roads. I do still have the OME shocks, and have not tried the RC shocks.|

|TJNewbie||Hey, cons table- how do you like that sound bar and the speakers that come in it? I'm thinking about getting one.|

|Jerry Bransford||P.S. I meant to give a few suggested brands if you want to start off with a tier one brand... Currie, Full Traction, Rock Krawler, Rubicon Express, JKS, Rockmen, etc.|

|Cons_Table||I think the biggest complaint I have heard on RC is that there shocks are not valved correctly for a jeep, creating a rough ride|

|pakman55||ive heard good things about RC. Im getting the 3.75" combo soon.|
|06-08-2010 12:35 PM|
Installing 33" tires without any lift would not be a wise thing to do. Wait until you can afford to do it right by installing them with sufficient clearance with a suspension lift or a combination of a suspension and small 1" body lift.
For 33" tires, 4" of lift is best for a TJ. Some "get away with" only 3" of lift with 33" tires but without added trimming of the wheel wells, 3" isn't enough for 33" tires unless the Jeep only gets driven on the street.

|rellyynn||Thanks everybody for the info. Would anybody recommend Rouch Country suspension lifts? I have enough for the 3.25 lift, but ive heard that they arent all that good.|
