okay lemme do some math for you

stock xj height belly height = x inches

stock xj tires = 29 inches

3 inch lift + 33 inch tires = (x+3) + (33-29)/2 = 3 + 2 = 5 Inches of net belly lift.

add a high clearance belly skid to gain another inch nets you 6 inches clearance over stock.

sooo yea i rest my case

you have 33's you have 2" larger tires (radius not diamater) and you dont have that skid, sooo lets drop you down 8"

you're goign to win this

height has zeor to do with offroad ability. quick hijacking this guy's thread. he asked for pictures on and XJ with 3" lift and 33's if you can contribute and are just going to start arguements, leave the thread alone.

you have some **** to learn, mostly about not being a hot-headed ******* and learn to accept that people do things differently from you.

later

any chance we can stick to the thread fellas? platinum it may not be for you, but that is what the op wants to see. imo 4.5 and 33s is one of the best setups. not a whole lot if really any trimming required. i have 4.5 inch rustys coils, 2 inch springs, and 2 inch blocks with RE adj superflex uppers and lowers and a RE trackbar. i have zero rub at full flex and at full lock. my jeep flexs really good. btw i run no sway bars and a dd it

I'll be the first to admit, I had almost no uptravel there. However, it was temporary, and I am now at 3.5"-4" of lift.


I'm quite happy with the way it's setup now. I currently have 4" to 5" of up travel (depending on how hard I hit my bumps) and have yet to put a tire into my fender.
Right now my shocks are the limiting factor in my setup. They don't have nearly enough travel.
Come spring I'm hoping to get long travel OMEs so, I should have around 4-5 up travel and about 6" of down travel.
Not too bad for just a hair over 3" of lift and 33s.

While I'm all for LCOG jeeps, I don't think it's quite that simple.

On really deeply rutted trails, in deep mud, and in deep snow, the clearance under the diffs/axle tubes is definitely the most important factor. If you get high-centered on both axles, it doesn't matter how high the jeep is sitting above your stuck axles.

But, for going up ledges, big rocks, etc., the clearance under the body between the two axles is going to be the most important factor.

So, really, it depends on the kind of wheeling you're doing, as far as I'm concerned. You really need the big tires and the big lift to do it all well. Of course, your jeep will be a rolling deathtrap on the highway unless you've got a ridiculously wide stance, and heavily upgraded brakes and steering. Either way, you're spending a crap-ton of money that could have been spent on gas to go on more wheeling trips in your cheap jeep, and maybe a winch to get it unstuck.

You're failing. There is NO right way to jeep.

No one cares about what you do to your jeep, especially if you act like that.

And I can vouch for the body vs. axle clearance argument.

I'm on nearly 4 inches, and 31's, I never hit the body, but I hit the axles all the time. 33's on 3-4 inches would be great, but Im not a fan of massive tires on stock gears.

Big tires>big lift
