33s on OME 2.5" lift
 
Is anyone running 33" tires with 2.5" OME suspension lift here? Pictures please if you do.

Will I need spacers if I do and what size will I need to clear a 33" tires.

Thanks in advance

I do. 2.5" OME + 1" BL + 1" bumpstop extensions in front, 1.5" in the rear.

You can't fit 33s on a 2.5" OME alone. You need either: A) 1" BL + 1" bumpstop extensions in front, 1.5" in rear or B) 2" bumpstop extensions.

If you have an aftermarket front track bar the bumpstop requirement will increase, because otherwise the track bar will hit the diff cover at full compression. Also, if you have the OME track bar relocation bracket installed, without at least 1.25" of rear bumpstop it will hit the tub at full compression, and the shocks will bottom out.

I do too. I have the 2 inch OME suspension, 1.25 inch body lift and a 3/4 spacer in the front. You can see my profile for the pictures. What are your plans for the axle and gearing??

Yes. Here is the evolution of our Jeep

33's are near the bottom.

I'm running rims with a 3.25" backspacing. I went with DPG's Ultimate OME kit.

Ooops! Did I mess up? Lifted from Dirk's site, unless there's something I don't know. Inside joke?

You didn't mess up. You did right! Dirk is the man for TJ suspensions.

Ditto, and don't mind Mr. C...he has this tick that can only be cured by grinding parts off. :zap:

What's really messed up is that Dirk still has the same carpet. :eek:
