Tire size help

I have an 02 tj, inline 6 with Dana 44 in the back and 30 or 35 in the front. I have a roughcountry 4" lift and I'm running 33x12.5, I also have flat fender flares which give me alot of clearance. Should I go to 35"s? I would not be adding any more lift. I'm okay with minor rubbing while off roading.

If you need to ask for permission, no, you shouldn't go to 35s. Most people go to 35s because they need them for their terrain. And you shouldn't have rubbing with and tire size if you set up your rig properly. And it's a Dana 30 front, 35s are only rear.

I have 44 in the rear though, atleast that's what the tag states. I'm basically asking it its possible without causing damage

What about the front axle? Brakes? Gears? Bumpstops?

Fill in your profile. You are probably going to want to consider re-gearing for the 35s if you still have stock gears.

Sounds like you have enough clearance (so long as your bump stops are setup correctly). A 1"-1.25" BL would also help alleviate any clearance concerns if you don't already have one. Again, fill in your profile!

Ill be honest, this may seem foolish but I'd like to do 35" without spending much cash. I don't really want to do a BL, and I'm not sure about my bumpstops, I'm still learning with alot of this.
