Opinions wanted: 6.5 in lift with 33 in tires

So I have an 04 grand cherokee with 33 in toyo mts on a 4 in lift with bushwacker flares all around.

I plan on going up to a 6.5 in lift and I need opinions on how you guys think it would look?
Do you think it would make the tires look to small??

Opinions would be greatly appreciated!

I'm at 6" and 33's with fender trim. You decide. Also check out the lifted ZJ/WJ pic thread or the WJ pic thread.

If I were you I would run the 33's until they are done. then step up to a 34 But that's just my own opinion. I think it looks good with 33s at that lift hight but 34s would look better

I'm running 32s on a 3 inch lift and had to trim part of the bumper. My only problem flexing is the fender. I still have some trimming to do
