IMHO 1 inch of lift for every inch over 30 in tire size is the most i would ever go, so my answer would be yes, 33's would be too small for that much lift.

LCG on the other hand is more like 1 inch for every 2 inches of tire over 30's so in the LCG mind-set you only need about 2.5-3 inches of lift for 35's.

LCG equals a safer, more stable, and easier to control 4x4 any day of the week. this helps not only on the trail but on the street as well...

No it sits there till I feel like driving it. I have a car a daily back and forth to work. I like the 35x10.50's they do well in mud. I'll eventually go bigger when I have the time and money

The tires are fitting just fine. I have my disconnects on right now and haven't had a chance to wheel and take the connects out. I hit a few trails around the area just for a 10 minute fun ride but I just put these tires on a few weeks ago. If they hit the flares, they are flares I really don't care, I'll trim them or take them off. Buddy ran 35's on 2in BB lift and rubbed fenders and I have almost an inch and half more clearance with my lift plus I have extended bump stops and he did not.

If you consider tire hum then they have perfect manners. People will know you are coming, stare and say damn I want some

My work in progress... -6" lift (minus 6), about as low as i could get it on 1tons and 38.5 SXs. Could lower the rear a lot more but the front would be tough without going to a low steer or putting a relief in the frame.

Around 3 inches. I cant go lower without backhalfing my frame. I am shooting for an inch lower with the belly up just a tad.
