31s are best with no lift, 33s are asking for trouble, unless of course you are gonna drive in a straight line, then reverse home in a straight line

is it better to get tires and a lift at the same time or get the lift first then the tires


if so does anyone have any pics of a jeep wrangler with a 2.5 inch lift with 33 inch tires----would that work

you can get tires first, but i wouldnt put them on, get at all the same time, or start with lift first
i think this pic is just with a "2 BB, i added a "1 BL for the added clearance.

Get the lift first......My Sahara is currently on 33x12.5x15 DC Mud Country's without a lift (ordered the 3" Full Traction lift from 4WD before I had the tires mounted and 2+ weeks later I just heard that it's finally on the way).

I've been driving careful as hell and STILL have rubbed my fender flares a good dozen times.

I'm hoping that UPS drops off the lift tomorrow so I can have it installed before Monday.

Stock with no lift


Flexing a little and lots of rubbing over speedbumps. I installed my 4" superlift the next day and I wouldn't do 33's untill you have the lift installed.

Here's some more pics...

First is post tire, pre lift....I had to drive like that for 3 weeks while I waited for the lift to ship.


Here's how she sits today.



The spots are just a little mud that I picked up Friday at softball...





I'm currently sitting about 37.25" at the fender flare in the rear and 35.5" in the front.....I should be adding a 3/4" spacer in the near future.

Sorry to bring up an old subject, but it's not so old to me If you use flat fender flares like these can you fit a 33 inch tire without a lift on a '99 TJ?

If you cut the fenders and did the Highline fender "lift" you could fit 33's with no actual lift. Search Highline fenders for pics and write-ups for it.

Here you go. Stock with 285/75-16 BFG M/T's on AEV Bridger wheels.




But my lift will be getting installed today. I'm going with a RC 3.25" with the .75" spacers in front only to level things out.

If I can ever manage to save up enough to get my V8, I'll be going with smittybilt tube fenders, a 1" lift, and 33s. I know that the TNTs let you fit 35s well, so I figure that the smittybilt fenders should have a similar effect.

Anyway, you should definitely get atleast a couple inches of lift, or you're going to run into problems. I know someone running tires on his F250 that are too big (don't remember the size), but he's had all sorts of problems due to them rubbing when he's at like 3/4 turn...
