I guess I'll be your first then. I'm on 33s with 4.88 gearing. It's my daily driver and I drive it on the freeway. It is geared too low and gets pretty bad mileage (12 mpg). But, to be honest, I...

I couldn't get rid of driveline vibes with my 2 inch lift. At first, I used transfer case drop spacers and then a motor mount lift. Nothing worked to get rid of them, so I had to install a slip...

The choices are endless. Just don't get cheap, hard to balance steel wheels and you'll be fine.

Then your speedo/tach is going to be off a little. You have to account for the extra bulge on the ground. That's why it's easier to measure the tire before you mount it on the vehicle. (Or jack it...

You might want to speak to a SkyJacker dealer to see if you can easily downsize to a 4 inch lift.

If you're unwilling to properly gear your jeep for those tires, get some BFGoodrich AT KO 33x10.50R15s and lower your suspension. They ride great on the street and handle really well.
