Crager, good idea?

2.5" suspension, .5" shackle lift, 1" BL.
Wanting to do crager soft 8's, 15-8 with 4" BS
BFgoodwrench KM2's 33-12.50

I know it will look good, just worried about the 33's with 4" BS

Fear causes hesitation, hesitation causes your worst fears to come true

I'm pretty sure I run the equivalent backspacing, and I do get rubbing on the springs at full steering lock. That is solvable by adjusting the steering stops. The only other issue is that the tires stick out past the fender flares. I've got close to 200K miles (about 50K on 33's) on my jeep now, and still on the original bearings, so no real issues there.

Why not just get the 3.75 or 3.5 BS?
