Too Light???
 
Ok so I have a TJ with a 4" lift and 33s and recently I have removed the back seat, as I have already removed the spare tire. Anyway I think the Jeep now feels too light. Is this possible or am I feeling so other issue????

something else. I believe you should keep your rig as light as possible. the lighter it is the better it will perform. what you are most likely feeling is the difference in the center of gravity of the Jeep. It has moved up, away from the ground, hence it will move around a bit more, especially in corners compared to before.
dont worry, you'll get used to it..

If you lighten the top, I think you will find that the cog lowers.

Also, as simple as it may seem, check your air pressure in the tires.

Removing the spare and the rear seat is only about 150-ish lbs. You're not gonna notice that. Most you should notice from that would be a slight rise in the rear suspension, maybe 1/2" or so.
Check your tire pressure, and maybe have the alignment checked.

What do you mean by "feels too light"? Is it getting slippy in the corners? sloppy ride? bump steer / wandering?

My guess is the tires are probably a little overinflated. What pressure is in your 33's?
