And if I recall, 32" tires tend to be only a little more that 31" anyways. 33" used to be at least, a decent step up from 32". Lets see how long that lugged down transmission lasts. Tires too big for a vehicle, to the point that there is really no suspension travel allowed, and not a lot of turning radius either, looks plain stupid. Kind of like the idiots with the 24" wheels on their frontwheel drive cars cruising the hood. Real chicks will sit back and laugh. Dogs will run the other way and associate with cats rather than pee on your tires.... ok you get the point.

You said it, not us. Just our point, they aren't functional, as you can't even drive the thing down city roads without issues, let alone off roading. Perhaps us KJ guys have to come in and school the young folk with their KKs on how things are really done, not try to be posers.lol

The KK has slightly smaller wheel well openings then a KJ.Next thing you will say is you can put 35" tires on with a daystar spacer lift.

Let's see some pics of your 32" tires with no lift.There was a guy with a KK on another forum that custom made a lift kit and was at about 5" and barely could fit 33" tires,he had to go to 4.56 gears also.

Those are 33" tires on a KK and required 5" of lift.

I wonder what happened to bobblemochie,

If you're rubbing your fender flares hitting bumps, how in the world do you expect to do any flexing Offroad without ripping them off? Even with a 2" daystar lift, I wouldn't try it. Those things ride like a skateboard anyway. If you want to run 33's, be prepared for some expensive mods.

We'll either make our money off you at the body shop, or the diff shop when you blow it apart. Besides, as they say over on arfcom, if you didn't post pics, it didn't happen

Yeah, that aluminum front diff isn't gonna last long trying to turn tires that big. Either that or the axle shaft will fail. But come on guys. Let him do what he wants. It's his Jeep and if he doesn't want to listen to those that know more about the Liberty than him, then oh well

On a side note, isn't Jeepin_it_real one of the biggest KKs around now?

I think he talked about 33's. Pretty sure he's lifted 4", there are a few around with that lift.

Evan with 4 inches of lift 33s will be tight on a KK
no room to flex at all
6 inches of lift on a KJ and 33s work well

04 KJ WITH JBA 4 INCH COILOVER LIFT
03 KJ WITH 2.5 TOTAL CONTROL LIFT

He's running 32s. He's also sitting at 22.5" up front and 23.75" in back. I know he wants to go bigger though. Stock is what ~18" on KKs? So that's 4.5" up front and almost 5.75" in back.
