How much cutting will i need to do for...

Hey guys just wondering how much fender trimming will I need to do to fit 33x12.5 tires under my zj with an IRO 4.5 inch lift? I've had people tell me I'd need to cut a lot and other people tell me ill only need to trim the bumper cover

depends on how your lift is set up and how it settles. Not to mention how big your tires actually are. As well as backspacing of current rims, or new rims, or old rims and spacers.

So as far as wheels go, backspacing? Stock+spacers? What's the plan here?

thats funny i just posted my 33's and 3" lift pics in the lifted zj pics thread.

i had to hammer the pinch welds in and i trimmed a heavy 1" from around the front fender. havent been up to flex it to see if i have any more rubbing but i did bounce it around in a field near here and so far so good

Honestly not sure the back spacing on my wheels but I planned on buying spacers to pole them out of the wheel wells about a half inch. There 33x12.5 geolander m/ts on 15x8 procomp rock crawlers

idk back spacing on the pro comps. you might need spacers, might not, but they'll keep the tires from rubbing on the CA's.

As for trim...some people sit at 3" on 31's and need 0 trim, I'm about 3-3.25 and had to trim in the front (took off the bumper, screw it). Throw them on and see.
