Another request. 33" tires, 2" Lift, and flat fenders?

As the title states. I have 285/75/17 tires on my JKU. Will be putting a 2" rancho lift on it. Down the line I am thinking of maybe going with flat fenders but would like to start researching now.

Just wondering how big of a gap there is and if 33's look OK.

thanks

Here's a pic of 33's on my 2013 sport. At full lock I get a bit of interference with the sway bar, not enough to try spacers, or a lift/leveling kit..

Thanks for those that posted. Not exactly what I was looking for but greatly appreciated.

Still looking for pics if anyone has some.

I don't have any pictures but I'm interested because I was thinking of doing the same thing. I have the RK 1.5" coils which gave me a bit over a 2" lift. I'm putting 285/75r17 tires on next week, but I've always entertained the idea of flat fenders because i think they look great. However, because I'm only going with the 285/75r17, I should be able to easily clear that with my lift. In my opinion, I think flats only look good with a big 35" or a 37" tire if you have a lift. If you don't lift, I think flats and 285/75 or a 35" look great. I would say do one or the other, not both. Flats can quickly make a 35" tire look small.

Good point....I never thought that. I will leave my fenders alone as I will only go for either a 33" or 34"; wife still is already having a hard time getting on and off the Jeep with stock tires and lifted at 2". Argh! Lol!!!

x2 on going with 35" or 37" tires with flat fenders, it is just too much space with 33's.
