Without trimming sheet metal, 33s will rub the rear quarter panel near the door on stock control arms. Front might also, I can't comment. 32s can be run on 4" and stock CAs all day, just not the best. Adjustable track bars and proper wheel back spacing will help minimize rubbing.
Well I'm hoping 33's or 32's. I will trip sheet metel if I have to. Or just trim my spacers for 4.5-4 inch lift and tuck 33's with a little trimming. I just want avoid putting all the money and time into adjustable arms and all that stuff. Rather have a safe dd and trail rig that will ride decent
Hi im new to this forum. I have a 1995 jeep grand Cherokee Orvis edition. Just bought it a few months back for $500. Has 160,000 miles and a 5.2 v8. Already has a 3 inch coil lift. I'm putting another 3 inch bb lift on soon. I plan on getting front upper adjustable arms and a front adjustable track bar as soon as I put the lift on. Its going to be my dd and a little off-roading on the weekends. Nothing serious. What else MUST I need? I'm doing the cv front driveshaft swap to U-Joint. Just wondering what else im missing?
Right now on my 93' ZJ I have a 7'' lift with long arm kit (very pricey) with 33s and I out wheel guys with 37s! BUT, if you want to have a big truck and fit 33s I personally recommend you look into a 4.5'' Rubicon Express lift kit. It will give you an aggressive jeep look and be able to fit 33s without having to trim your fenders. 33x12.5 tires can be fit with a 4.5 inch lift. When using a tire of this size, the rear begins to become a slight problem. A few have taken to trimming the area right behind the rear door, since from the factory, that is made as just 'dead space'. Another option is to move the axle back with adjustable control arms, but depending on the move, a new rear driveshaft may be required, or if going too far back, then rubbing may become a problem at full compression in the rear (the axle moves back as it compresses because of the way the control arms work). Feel free to ask anymore questions!
Yea thanks for the comments. But what should I do. I know it's ok to have 4.5 inches of lift with minor work and over that is opening a whole new can of worms. I'm thing just to get 4-4.5 iches of lift with adjustable track bars and adjustable front upper adjustable arms. I'm not getting any other arms....way to much $$$. Give me your guess's opinion on 4.5 inches of lift and 33' tires
