33s with 3" suspension?

I own a stock 87 YJ Wrangler and have been looking to get a lift and some bigger tires. I have heard good things about Rough Country suspension lifts, and I'm looking at getting a 3" lift. I have heard you can easily run 33s with a 3" suspension, but lately i read somewhere that you don't want to go any higher than 31s. Will the 33s fit with the 3"RC lift? thanks for your help

My opinion is that a 3" lift running 33's is very borderline. You may have some rubbing. You may want to go with a 4" and be done with it. Then again not all lifts are created equal. That rule also goes for tires too.

94 YJ, 2.5, 4" ProComp Lift, 33's,

I think 33s are a tough fit under a 4" lift.

I am running the RC 3 inch lift with 33's. It rubs under heavy flex (especially with the sway bars disco'd) If you not planning on doing a lot of off-roading until your rig is done, you can do what I did and do the suspension first followed by a Body lift further down the road. pics are up on my website I think its in my signature.

Thanks Atropine, that helps alot, and the jeep looks good. If i WERE to get a 2 inch body lift along with the 3" RC lift, would that eliminate rubbing, and would I have to trim fenders? thanks again for answering all my questions guys

I am actually going with a 1 inch shackle lift,1 inch body lift and trimming my fenders (I saw how HUBDEEPs turned out and now im convinced). I'll let you know how it turns out. I figure if I need more room still I can put another 1 inch puck on. You should see this by the end of the month.
