Jeep TJ 4 cyl. with no lift and 33 inch tires

Does anyone have a Jeep TJ that's a 4 cylinder with no lift riding on 33's? I'm thinking about upgrading from 31's, and I want to see how it'd look. BTW, I have no lift-stock. If you wouldn't mind posting some pics....

You'll find out real quickly why many people say it's a requirement to have 3" or 4" of lift to run 33" tires. You can physically put them on your jeep with no lift, but hitting the smallest bump will rip your plastic fender flares off. If you adjust your bumpstops to keeps that from happening, you'll end up with almost no uptravel whatsoever, and make your jeep near useless. If you want to stay low and run a larger tire, you'll be trimming a ton of sheet metal to get everything to jive.

Right, cheap, or easy, you only get two.

2.4 Liter 4 cylinder, 1" body lift, 1" trimmed off of fender flares, 33's on a 17" rim. It was drivable, kinda....

I added a 1.5" budget boost up front and stuffed the coil springs full of tennis balls (cheap bumpstops) so that I could wheel it for a weekend.

The tires rubbed and hit everything possible. It did put a smile on my face though, and it survived 3 days of Rausch with no detrimental breakage.
