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!

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

As I roll down the trail,I hope my traction will not fail.But if I spin & begin to slide,please dear lord protect my ride

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
