Killed the gremlin... Now thinking of a lift.

After months of chasing my tail I purchased a new BCM from eBay and the parasitic draw is gone. The part number is different, but I haven't noticed any issues - it actually seems to be running a little smoother as far as idle and acceleration.

So I looked again at the lift/tire size chart in the FAQ. It says 33s will fit on a 3.5" lift. Will 33s on a 3.5" require trimming?

Also - Iron Rock says their foundation series kit includes everything but I've noticed threads talking about adding a adjustable arm. Can anyone clarify? I emailed Iron Rock general email this week but did not receive a reply.

Lastly a quick shout out to Deejay Zeejay, Zeejay97, Coralman, and KoreaZJ and all the others who helped guide me in hunting down the gremlin. It was quite the learning experience.

33s won't fit on a 3.5" lift without cutting sheetmetal and new rims with proper backspacing.

I assume you are looking at a kit with all 4 coils, 2 trackbars, sway bar links and shocks. Then it would be close to a complete lift. You'll probably want adjustable control arms and will probably NEED them if you want to run 33s.
