I currently have 31X10.50s and i am currently wanting to get 33's and sooner the better. Currently i dont have the spare money to put a suspension lift on and really dont want to put on a BL. i was thinking with factory suspension and tubed flares i would be ok in the front, but how will it be affected in the rear?
also will i have problems off road with this setup?
and for a bigger dream would 33X11.50s suck under ok? i dont like to off road hard core as it is my DD and i cant afford to fix it everytime i tear it up, currently battling death wobble till my steering assembly gets here
any suggestions would be greatly apreciated, thanks in advance
are your 31s bald? if you bought another set of 31s, you could buy a budget boost or even the RC 2.5" lift with the money you saved. or try to find a used set of tires to get you by. buy a lift when you can and then tires.
i can prolly last on my tires till snow hits... think ill throw 2.25" spacers under it i know i will need bump stops for the rear. will i still need tubed flares then? i knew spacers might be an option but didnt think it would help all that much what is your thoughts on spacers? will the spacers allow me to throw the 33X11.50s on?
i believe i have spacers on the i just bought the jeep in september of last year and ive not done anything but play with it lol. but the wheels stick out about 1.5-2" from stock fender flares so i assume theres spacers installed and by the way it looks when i hit the tiniest of mudholes makes me think it has to have spacers:/ havent actually looked or even thought to look should prolly get on that lol
take some picutres of the springs, anyone here can tell you if there's a spacer or not.
I don't think you need to worry about the tires sticking out too far, it will give it a better stance. But like demp said 11.5" is too wide for stock rims unless you get a wheel spacer. I'd say just throw on some 32's instead if its just with a spacer lift.

You don't have money for a suspension lift.but you have money for tubed fenders.
ooops not spacers, i know it doesnt have spacers on it yet i meant backspace i dont have stock rims... not sure what the backspacing is and i cant post pics just yet as i dont have 25 posts up yet... and yes i can afford tubed fenders because i can install, im scared to try to install a lift on it and even more scared to find out how much someone would charge me to do so.
I was intimidated to try a lift a while back too but it really is very easy on a Jeep Wrangler, just a few bolts and there are tons of great writeups with step by step instructions, that certainly helped me. 4x4xplor.com has a great BB writeup.
As previously posted, hit every bolt with PB blaster for a week before you install and that made things alot easier. We did a lift on my friends TJ and his rear upper shock mount bolts broke and that was a PITA to deal with. But with some PB blaster, possibly some heat, and steady pressure, all bolts will come out well. You can definitely do it yourself
