That looks/sounds like something that would usually be done to a beat up XJ, not a TJ....

On another note, how is the 8.25 holding up?

That's roughly where I'm heading.... 33x12.2 Toyo M/T's w/ 1" spacers on my 16x8" A.R. Python wheels.

I measured how much clearance I have now (w/ 31x11's) at the rear shock tower. Going 1" wider on the 33's will reduce the clearance by 1/2 "..... so 1" spacers were more than enough.

8.25 holdin up fine, Im sure an 8.8 woulda coulda shoulda but this was layin around so I geared and welded it , its 29 spline with zj disk on a 4 banger, spares are in the garage jic . swappin axels isnt that big a deal for me but for anyone payin to get it done on a jeep they care about.... I would reccomend 8.8s for peace of mind. Check out treadwright for tires...couple of our guys are runnin them they have lots of metric sizes that are around 32 to 33 inches and 10.5 to 11 inch widths, alot in 16 and 17 inch rim sizes not much in 15. great tires, hold up to hard wheelin and good on the road. im swichin to 16 inch rims and doin 285,75,16 guarddog( goodyear mtr, goodyear carcass and goodyear still written on sidewalls) they measure 33.2 and are 11.4 wide and stand that tall in the real world too, not like swampers that run an inch or so smaller than stated on the sidewall.

First post, new Wrangler

Hi everyone,
I wanted to introduce myself and my new TJ, we traded my fiance's VW Beetle for it this weekend. It's an 03' with 130,xxx miles, I6, 5 speed, 3.27 gearing and 33" tires. I was hoping if anyone could tell from the pictures if it's had any kind of lift, I've been browsing the forums a few days and most post seem to suggest you can't run 33" without a lift.









If anyone has any info or advice I'm all ears. Thanks!

Doesn't look like it's had any lift, IMO

running 32" all terrains now with stock wheels and no lift. I've been to the dunes with it only and it didn't rub the fenders or anything like that. though it did give the bumpstops a work out... I plan on a 2" lift soon and staying with the 32's... looks good, performs good for what I do. no need to go any higher. (for me)

that is one nice looking jeep. It looks like it has stock suspension and no body lift.

you can run 33's just depends on the backspacing

Doesn't look like it has any lift!
If you don't know what to look for underneath the Jeep.... you can go HERE. for factory height!
Measure to top of roll bars and make corrections for half increased tire size over factory.
This method worked for me when I was a newbie.... 3 months ago.

Wlecome to Jeep Forum; nice looking rig!!

Had the skyjacker lift, hydro shocks, steering stabilizer, and RC spacers Installed yesterday.
They ride is at least as good as stock. Now I'm trying to locate some used 33/11.5/15 BFG's.

same, skyjacker definately rides smoother as far as little road bumps go but they are stiffer/more heavy duty so they bump more when you hit speedbumps and stuff like that. ended up getting 33x12.5 bfg km2s, love them, i can even tell a more comfortable ride with these compared to the wrangler silent armors, they seem to absorb much more vibrations, probably due to the lower psi and alot thicker rubber.

got black lugs after this picture though

Did you install body light also? How much backspacing did you need?
