No problem at all. One of the main reasons I went with this tire setup is so I could keep the narrower 10.5" width, which I prefer. Not aware of a quality 32x10.5 tire on the market in 15" size.

I also considered when off road I normally air down, so some height is lost there. May not be a huge deal but I think it is of some value. Best of luck!

Bit of mall crawlin' flex today. I was able to nearly max out the front and it seems that my bumpstops will not need to be modified. I may consider trimming the fenders a small amount, maybe .25" most. Either way working to get the Jeep ready to wheel here soon. I need to replace the right tie rod, just using another ZJ one.









You will also notice my spare hasn't been replaced. I ordered a matching steel wheel, and took it to the tire shop. But for some reason they only had 4 of the tires I requested delivered. Left the wheel with them, and they are going to have it ready for me this coming week.

Ordered a replacement passenger side tie rod end today. felt a wobble off and on for a while, and tire shop said it had excessive play. will be in tomorrow. Hoping to install and align this weekend. That plus my full size spare and its ready for it's maiden voyage on 33s!!

New tie rod was installed then aligned the next day. Full size spare is in also. Waiting on hockey pucks to properly space tire to tailgate.

33s have not been bad at all, can't get an accurate read on fuel usage as it was cold last week so there were many mornings where I let it warm up before heading out. But very pleased with them thus far.

Stole this idea off of another member on this forum, can't recall who it was. Headed to Lowe's, ended up with a heavy duty 110 lb caster. Cut the top part off, drilled a few additional holes, sanded, painted, then drove it home with some self-tapping screws. Result:



Really seems to help support the tire. I do notice the interference when I close the tailgate, which makes me feel good about the additional support. To increase the functionality of the setup I have some hockey pucks and longer bolts. Plan to extend the OEM rubber stoppers later this week so they firmly contact the tire.

Pucks are all sorted for rear tire spacing, very pleased and super easy install.

Went to test 4wd functionality tonight, transfercase popped out 4 high twice. Stayed in 4 low with no issue. I have had issues since the beginning, before the BL & MML. I have tried it with and without the bracket sent with the M.O.R.E. kit. Going to man up and order the Novak shifter kit and never worry again.

Checking with Savvy first to see if they have it in stock, they have treated me well and offer the JF discount.

Savvy does not have the 231 kit in stock. Ordered direct from Novak, hopeful they can ship it out quick and have them at the ready!

Looks great!

In other news, Novak shifter showed up today. They were on backorder for a couple of days, but no big deal.



Hope to find time to install this weekend, can't wait to be finished fumbling with the stock garbage.
