Also ordered the 33x12.5 Duratrac's from Discount Tire and I'll be getting them mounted this weekend. If I get the body lift from 4wd, I will put it all on. Not too worried about rubbing right now since I'm never at full steer and won't be offroading until the BDS parts arrive. More updates to come.

I'm diggin those wheels. Sounds like you got a good plan running. I would keep an eye in the rear fox shocks I've head they can be a long. Some say and some others don't. Just a fair warning. I kinda wish I went with BDS or Zone cause I would still have money for tires

Are those fox shocks specifically made for the bds coils?
I was looking into them to run them with 3" currie coils for my dads jeep instead of rancho but I kinda wanna try those fox ones out

Yeah ironhead_jed said that they usually give the 3" shocks with the 2" lift. But their website said the fox's were the same length as the BDS ones. So I'll have to see. If I need new shock mounts to accumulate the longer shocks, so be it. I was planning on it eventually.

I don't think they are. They are definitely cheaper if you get them with lift though. I was just at my local shop and the guy said he thought he heard BDS was actually going to do away with the fox shocks. That's why I'm snagging them now.

The fox shocks are valved for the BDS springs but can fine to use with any other spring

33s are a great starting point around here. They are big enough to conquer the local trails (I used to wheel the hardest stuff at URE on 31" A/Ts) and small enough that they wont put too much stress on his drivetrain while he upgrades.

If they are too long this is a simple fix:
