Bushwacker 6" Pocket Flares clearing 33" tires?

Ive got stock fenders trimmed flat on my TJ now with 33x12.50 KM2 tires with 4.75" backspaced wheels. 2-3" suspension lift and 1.25" body lift. Thinking about getting some bushwacker 6" pocket flares, anyone have experience with how much these clear the tires?

The Bushwacker pocket flares actually hang down lower than a stock un-trimmed flare, providing less clearance.

They are also very brittle and break easily if used off road.

I broke mine back when I only had 32" tires.

I would consider another option.
