33x9.5 on 2.5" lift

bored at work.
what do you think? a 33" BFG all terrain on a 15x8 3.75" back space wheel with either OME or RE 2.5" springs?

won't be much of a wheeler; ZJ does that duty. more of a project/flip/summer runaround/reason to piss off my wife/garage time/drinking time/fun time project.

Did it with a used Rancho lift I got off a guy who was upgrading to a 4" lift. Worked fine. Need a tc drop because of the 33's, but other than that, fit just fine. Looked pretty good as well.

33x12.5 works on my wife's Jeep fine. It will fit better after I install a set of TJ flares but for driving around town it has been fine. No reason the skinny tires shouldn't fit.

33s should have nothing to do with driveline angles. i'd guess it was due to no shims on the springs to adjust pinion angle.

i didn't think the combo would be bad.
