Tires

Just picked up a steal on some 33/12.5/15 bf Goodrich mud terrains with rims...I have 2.5" suspension and a .5 shackle and 3.54 gears. Anyone see any issues with gears or clearance?

Nope, you should be GTG. 3.73's would probably be better, but I think you'll be ok with the 3.54's.

I'm running the same size in Trxus MT's with a 4" suspension lift. I've got slight tire scuff marks on the inner rear fender well when fully stuffed. Not a big issue, though. Also, my speedo is about 7 mph off.
edit: also running 3.54 gears.

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

I'm running a similar lift 2.5 with .5 shackle. (until I upgrade suspension)
I'm getting close to new tires. I want to go with a 33X12.5.
Do you have any pictures of the front fender clearance.

You don't need the spacers.
Are those 8" or 10" wide rims?
Does look good.
BTW, MT's get 'loose' in the rain, BTDT went back to AT's
