You might run into more problems near the door since yours is a 4 door. I cut right around the stock flares, but when you cut that much you cut through the inner fender where it meets the outter fender and that leaves a gap. So you have to do some reconstructing from inside the jeep out. But it gives you a lot of clearance

In the first picture you can see the gap between the inner and outter fender

I finished my lift. I thought I had 32s in storage, but they were 31s. I decided to mount the 31s rather than go buy new tires. I think it still look pretty good. So I know this is slightly off topic not having 33s, but I thought it would help. I still have to install my skids and put the rear flares back on.

Hey Nick.... I just picked up the same lift and rims with the same tires mounted on them. I will be throwing the lift on as soon as I can get around to it (hopefully the week of thanksgiving) and won't be doing any trimming....at least not right away. Can you post up some more pics of yours. Maybe one shot of it from the side and with better lighting? Thanks a lot man.... that goes for anyone else with 33's on a 4.5" with no trimming

4.5in with 33x12.50 KM2's



Front and rear sway bars still connected. This is an old saggy 4.5in lift also. Prob sits more like 4-3.75 now a days.

can you email me any pics you have of your buddy's Jeep? That looks a LOT like mine and gives me the best idea of how mine COULD turn out

what driveline mods do you have to make if you get a 4.5 inch lift? is it the same for a tj where you need a slip-yoke eliminator and cv driveshaft?
