Nice Jeep. I really like the 33x10.5 on the Unlimiteds. Does the BB and BL give you enough clearance? Any rubbing?

I don't have wheel spacers so the tires would rub on full turn without extra steering stops in place. It still rubs a bit on the swaybar, but not too bad.....and only at full flex.

I have 3.73 gears too, but I find the gearing perfect. I don't rockcrawl though.

All good to know. Do you get any rubbing in the fenders. I'll guess you don't. I would think the 10.5 is narrow enough to have plenty of room in there. I appreciate the comments and pictures. Please post a couple more if you have some. Nice poser shots are fine.

I'm hoping to trade off my 99 Sahara next fall for an Unlimited. When I do, I'm hoping to lift it right away. I think I am going to go with either a 2" spring lift with a body lift or a 3" spring lift. Its my understanding that a 2" lift will ride better since the suspension geometry is changed less. So if that clears 33's sufficiently I will likely go that route. Thanks for the info and pictures.

Hasn't rubbed the fenders......the best ride I have heard is the OME 2.5". That with the 1" body lift will clear 33's.

a few more pictures at different mod stages:




These l;ast two are with 31" tires and the 2"BB and the front swaybar disconnected

I do a double take every time I see one of those Unlimiteds. They just look out of proportion with how long they are, guess I'm just used to standard wranglers. Those do look really nice though!

Black '91 YJ, pretty much stock for now. Finished engine rebuild. Runs beautifully.

Yeah, I hated them when they first came out. Then I kind of just got used to the look. Now I have one kid and another on the way and I want one. Although I still prefer the classic look of the SWB I can definietly see advantages to the LJ. And like the pictures above show, you can lift them a little and they look really good.

Now the new 4 door on the other hand just seems wrong to me. A very capable offroader and usefull vehicle to be sure. But as a Wrangler its just wrong.

You've just been jaded by all the 4 doors you see at the mall. They look at lot better with a lift, tires and some dirt.

What size tire is on the green one. It looks stock with a 31, but it looks pretty good. Am I right or is their more lift than that?

I'm really getting the bug to sell my SWB and get an LJ now. If I didn't just purchase a different family vehicle in Nov I'd probably be look more agressively right now.
