31x10.5R15 Interco Truxus MT's on Cragar V-5's. 3.75" bs. Hated the tires, Interco still doesn't know how to make a round tire. Never sees the trail so we got her a set of Rubi Moabs. Looks a bit less aggressive, but the wife likes it better and now it rides great.

You're going to rub running 33's on a 3 inch unless you hack your fenders up. Go with 31s with a 3 inch lift...

I have a morning ritual that I need to share. I call it "the terminator". First I crouch down in the shower in the classic "naked terminator traveling through time" pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing either Arnold or the guy from the second movie (not the chick in the third one because that one sucked) and I start to hum the terminator theme. Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed through my day as an emotionless, cyborg badass. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy.

they are 32x11.50 15. i did get some rubbing but i foun it was just the inner fender liner. so once i trimmed that and pinned it back in place its no longer rubs. and thank you for the complaments! i LOVE the patriot Bule Jeeps its my favorite! it took me FOREVER to fine a patriot blue with the 5 speed. and i could not be any happier.... except maybe with a long arm lift and 35"s lol
