The difference between 33" and 35" is 2"
The difference between 35" and 37" is 2"

The amount of regret if you get 35's instead of 37's =

The amount of regret if you get 33's instead of 35's =

You get the picture!

Actually, my 35's only measure out to 34"... I wonder how much smaller true 33's would look on my rig sometimes.

So I pulled out the RC BB and added the OME 618 rear and 619 front springs.
I can't call them 2" lift coils! They gave me over 2" more than the RC 2" BB

I think that some guys have just shimmed it down with some washers.
Notching is another option if shims won't work.

Sweet!. As a rule, all the spring lifts net more than advertised. While the BB's are a hard puck, so they are pretty much defined. I went with the RE 3.5, and I know I netted close to 4.5

It has settled though as the Jeep just keeps getting fatter...

I myself could not decide between 33" or 35" but after much research I realize that if I go with 33" I will regret it...plus I found a local 4x4 shop that will regear for $1,000....but for now I just plan to run a flashpaq

as some guy said " 33's are for guys that don't have the balls to go with 35's "

oh yeah I plan to run 35" nitto trail graps....

You removed the tranny skid plate to not F-up your drive shaft?
What lift do you have?
I have 3" and the drive shaft is not even near the skid plate...

I thought you're drop down box said 5" of lift. My bad. Anything over 3 inched they recomend removing it so that at full flex the drive shaft doesn't get tore up.

Ah ok we're on the same page then.
Yes, 5" including 2" body lift.
And yes, past 3" suspension lift you need to take care of the skid plates and drive shaft angle...
10-4.
