On 33's. Since you're looking at lighter tires, I'd suggest 33x10.50x15's, they're just as light as 32's just skinnier.

I recently added some JKS Discos, but nothing other than that. I plan to go with a full set of Savvy arms and possibly new trackbars/steering.

Yes you will rub with stock rims. You need wheel spacers, properly backspaced wheels, or to adjust your steering stops. I still rub slightly with the 33x10.50's. I don't think a trackbar will affect the tires rubbing.

i plan on picking up a set of cragers 4" backspacing should be fine. Sorry for so many questions but any driveline vibes with lift?

No problem, I rarely get to help with my limited knowledge. Drive-line vibes are a totally different animal. The BDS kit gave me just under 3" of lift, that's why I can fit 33's so well. Yet somehow I didn't get vibes. With my 33's I have a weird vibe at 25 mph but disappears when the front DS is installed.
