ford 8.8 with 33s

Just wanted to see some rear end clearance pictures (flat ground would be awesome!) of a ford 8.8 with 33s

about as close as I can get right now.


I personally haven;t had any clearance issues with the 8.8, aside from the diff hitting the factory gas tank skid on occasion. I guess there's ways around that though.

Bump for interest. I'm installing a 8.8 in my tj later this month after the sye/cv shaft install. Running a 2'' lift on 265/75/16 Duratracs (just under 32'') and a Riddler diff (for 8.8)cover(low profile). Should be interesting to see and give me a good idea of what to expect.

These were taken shortly after I went SOA and installed my 8.8 (~8.5 years ago). I ran 33x12.50x15 bias ply TSL's at the time.
