Hello, I am new to the forum. I was thinking about changing my 30 BFG AT's to 32 or 33's. I have a skyjacker 2 1/2" lift, and stock gears with manual tranny. Has anyone ever done this and if so did you have any clutch problems?

With 2.5" inches, you'll have some rubbing with 33's. If you like to play on the rocks, I'd go with no more than 32's (31's would be better) with a 2.5". Anyway, if you do go with 33's, your clutch will go out a little sooner than normal. It's really not that bad, though. I ran 33's with 3.07 (stock) gears for 3 years before I finally did a gear swap. Expect about 70K miles out of your clutch assuming you have a 4.0L.
