I know, another one: will 33x12.5s fit?

I have a 2" shackle lift (for now till the rc lift this summer) and a 1" daystar body lift and a set of smittybilt 6" pocket style flares. Can I fit 33x12.5s? I measured a radius of 17" for good measure and I think I can. I have about a .5 to an inch clearance from that measurment. And the tires I plan to buy are actually 32.8" My rocker height is 19 and 3/4. I know I won't be able to flex at all, but will I rub on turns? This would be temporary untill my 4" rc lift around may hopefully. Thanks

01 TJ stock for now! OlllllllO

i think you need a total of 4 inches to be clear with no problems... I dont think you should have a problem from what i see.

from my exp. your biggest obsticles will be the tires hitting the fenders on bumps, but you can drive like a low rider till the lift comes, and worse, you need at 4.5" backspacing or you will hit the springs while turning, the stock rims are 5" and 5.5" for the aluminiums and will rub quite bad (as mine do now.....39.99 summit racing cure coming (soft 8s))
