33"s on 2" suspension lift?

I'm gonna need new tires soon (even though I just bought my Jeep) and I was wondering if anybody has done 33" tires on a 2" suspension lift? Any problems? Pictures appreciated

It depends on how you are using it, what rims/backspacing, exact tire width and fenders. On the road it will be fine. If you offroad, heavy flex or disconnect, you brobably will contact the fenders unless you add a lot to the bumpstops.

Throw in a 1-1.5" body lift and you should be OK... they are easy and cheap, and as long as you stay at 1.5" or below they look fine.

I ran 265/75R16's with the 2" lift, and stock flares, I had no rubbing....if I'd have put on the 305's without the fenders they would have rubbed.....unless I stayed at the mall.
