He's on the money. I ran stock Moab wheels with 11.5" wide 33's (actual measurement is 33.6") w/o a lift for a few months and the ONLY problem I had was rubbing on the sway bar on tight turns. This was fixed with spacers. I did some light wheeling (links connected) and I didn't notice any rub along fender flares, or pinch seams.
Hope that helps.
These pics are before the spacers.

If you are going to DD this Jeep then you are fine the way you are, if you are going to dual hat it and use it off road then go with the 2" budget boost and you should be fine. If you have the money then get a 3.5" coil spring lift and then you will be all set if you decide to go bigger later. It all depends on what you plan to do with it and how much cabbage you have to put into right now.

This is why i am confused.

With backspace wheels, will not rub at left/right turns but will rub offroad and bumps...
To be on the safe side, a BB will solve the problem and is not expensive either.
This is what i was told

I am running 33x12.5 tires on 17x9 inch wheels with no lift and no rubbing issues. Mine is a 2010 Wrangler 2 door Sport with almost 6,000 miles on it. Tires and wheels have been on since day one.

Is 4.25" backspacing sufficient to eliminate any rubbing with 12.5"? The procomps I want(98's) have only 4.25" backspacing.
I don't want to buy this setup up only to find out i have issues, tires and wheels are not returnable after mounting........

|jtsivo||If you need a 3.5" lift to run 35", you should need a 1.5" lift for 33"....or is my logic wrong?|

|ROB719||you can run 35's on a JK with a 3.5" lift. 33's should fit with no problem and no lift. the JK comes higher than our tj's did.|

Why do some people say......
Why do some people say that 33" with new wheels and 4.5 backspacing, will fit JK's without a lift; and some people say they will not. This uncertainty has made my decision very difficult! As I have said on other threads, it would be great if I can get the 33" now, and the lift in a few months, due to cash flow. So, if someone can ease my mind with some solid info, it would be great!
I appreciate your responses, I just need some piece of mind that when i get my tires, I wont be shredding them....
