issues with 33" tires rubbing

Wondering if any of you guys have issues with your 33" or bigger tires rubbing the washer fluid bottle in the fender when you twist up. Mine is removed but I want to put one on and don't know if it'll fit

I have 33s on my 2000 with a RE 3.5 inch lift and Napier Flat Fender Flares with no issues.

If it rubs, extend the bumpstop.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

It looks like it may fit... But it's close. Wondering if anyone has relocated it & what they used.

The PO of my XJ had installed some sheet metal to block the tire from hitting the washer fluid. It had clearly been rubbed before. Personally, I removed this skid as it was done super sloppy and simply extended by bumpstops with Hockey Pucks.

Fenders should not be used as bumpstops. Its way too thin to stop a tire.
