This might start another argument but for cheap, good 33's get some Treadwrights, there is another thread going right now about them . That's a big tire to fit cheaply though, you are going to need at least a 3" kit and still have to get out the cut off wheel and chop those fenders up, thats what i run at 6.5".

They should just post his name and email on top of the technical forum as a banner since he is mentioned in every part related thread but contact Nick ..... Kolak@aol.com and explain to him what you want and he will set you up with the lift at the best possible price.

WJ + small lift + 33's = cut up fenders and bumper and/or no flex

Yeah Treadwrights ftw. But there is.no way to get 33's under there with a small lift.. And once you get up past 3 inches you get into replacing alottttt

Might as well just take the fenders, front bumper cover, and rear bumper cover off. That'll be the cheapest way.

if you trimmed like I trimmed, or like most do who really stuff big tires, you could fit 33s with a BB.

But you will have to put some work into it... but it is really cheap.

here we go again... I feel a "what 4 lift is best" thread coming on I had my share of those though, gotta be told whats what and learn that cheap=cheap parts annd a bad ride.
You probably have 16 or 17 wheels stock. treadwrights are cheapest. There are other options out there, such as hercules, elderado, sportking etc that are cheap, or find some used ones on the cheap. even with fenders trimmed a lot, if you wheel, which I'm unsure of at this point given your dubious first post, 4 is the lowest you can realisticly go IMO and keep it clean looking, functional, and wheelable on 33's. Cheapest 4 you can go? Rough country. Or cram some 33's on a BB I'd like to see how it looks

Same here. A friend of mine has an '04 Rubicon. There is maybe an inch and a half from the top of the tire to the fender flare.
