RE 1.5" SOA Springs on 33's: need pics

Ok some will probably get mad and curse me for another tire/lift inquiry but I need pictures of something specific not a jumbled mess. Not to mention I've already used the search function for over an hour now and haven't really found what I'm looking for.

Anyway, I got a brand new set of 4 RE1444's with bushings today for $150. Currently I'm running saggy stock springs SOA on my 33x12.50x15 MT Baja Claws, booms in the rear and matching length con-fer fronts and I would like to see pics of your rigs running the RE1444's/RE1445's on 33's. I'm just trying to get an idea of where I'm going to sit. Thanks guys and sorry to make some of you froth at the mouth with anger.

When I first went SOA, I ran a set of 33x12.5x15 bias ply TSL's with the RE leafs. These pics are pretty old, and I was on 33 TSL's at the time.

RE1445 6-leaf in rear, RE 1444 5-leaf in front, following RE's advice... Mistake. Big difference in how each pair handles bumps. The rear springs are a little too stiff, even with the hard top installed and 3 passengers. The 1444's ride real nice, you'll like 'em on all four corners.

I figure when I add a winch up front I'll swap the springs fore and aft to see how much of a difference it makes in ride quality.

Sweet. Thanks guys!

I was just a little worried that because I've got tube fenders therefore flat fenders that it would look ridiculous on 33's. It still may look ridiculous depending on how my jeep decides to sit on them. It seems that most jeeps I've seen running the RE SOA springs they all sit different regardless if they have BL's or not.
