33x12.5x15 Duratrac Tires - 2.5in Lift - And IDC what you say!

I'm done with the internet on this matter. I'm sick of hearing every answer possible. As I type, these wheels are being put on the Jeep. So for once and for all I will finally discover whether this will workout and I will give you an update with all of the details and photos. I expect minor modifications will need to be made. We'll see!! Wish me luck!!

Okay, 33x12.5x15 do indeed fit on a TJ with a 2.5 lift. There is absolutely no rubbing at all. I have taken them to extreme offroading spots and had no issues. The truck drives even better than it did before.

And when you say 2.5 inch lift. Did you do a combination of Body lift and suspension lift, or is it just a straight suspension lift?

extreme off roading? tends to be a matter of perspective. But i would venture to say that at full flex it would rub. more so if sway is disconnected. but no lockers wont be seeing hard trails anyway. I have set of Duros on the excursion in 35s about a year now they still look new. Not the quietest AT. But the excursion is a diesel anyway 7.3s are noisy.

JP did a story on this same set up a number of years ago. I the one thing they did or recommended is extending the bumpstops more then the kit they used had so to minimize fender contact at full stuff. One thing that you could do is just trim the lower lip of the flares to give you a little bit more clearance.

Where is the best place to measure to determine the actual lift that was installed? 2004 TJ.

I was told its a 2 Mopar lift kit and its running 265...measure at 31 tires.
