Another lift and tire question.......

I am looking for lift ideas to run 33's and keep my OME springs (36R on all corners). Currently I have 1 inch shackles and TJ flares and I rub under full flex. Any ideas, I have welders, plasma cutters, grinders, sanders, and........
I also have a 8.8 ready to go in so the larger axle tube will lower the rear if i install it now... more rubbing.

Been there.

1" body lift would help some but your only real options are flex limiting bump stops, more lift or metal trimming.

I went thru all this and finally put on tube fenders and in the process of that for the bright idea to high line the hood. After that I had plenty of room for 35s. It never ends.

you could send those old ones to me and get some new ones that give you more room
I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.
