LJ 33s 4 inch lift request?

Hello everyone,

I have a 3 inch zone SL + 1.25 JKS BL = 4.25 of lift. I am on 31s now but am looking to move to 33s after regear in a couple weeks. However I just wanted to see what 4-4.25 of lift with 33x12.5r15 would look like on my LJ. I have searched and found lots of lifted LJs but it seems like most I find are 4in SL with 1' BL with 35s or 2' BB kits with 33s. Thanks!

To be honest, ljs need 35"s to look cool. My buddy has the zone combo lift on his tj and could easily fit 35"s. Measure you're clearance and see what you can fit.

I definitely agree with you and it has crossed my mind I am regearing to 4.88 and have centric front rotors with ebc pads and am going to be doing the v8 zj tie rod mod.i think I should be able to clear 35s andit being a DD with the d44 in rear I should be ok with the d30 in the front but seems that it comes down to functionality vs looks and not sure which way to go thats why I am looking to see if 33s with my lift really just look like a bigger stock version or not.

The d44 with 4.88 gears will be able to handle 35"s without a problem. 33"s will look a little odd on a LJ with 4.25" of lift. But when running 35"s you would also have to consider a SYE and CV driveshaft. 35"s would work, and so would 33"s. It just depends what YOU want to do with the jeep.

Here is the zone combo lift (3in Suspension, and 1.25in BL) with 33x12.50x15. It looks good but personally i think it needs bigger tires, although it rubs on all 4 corners completly flexed out

I NEED 35's....could easily be running them now but don't feel like dropping the cash to make the jump. I agree LJ's need 35's to look proportional

BDS 3" SL, JKS 1.25" BL, Brown Dog 1" MML
These are 33x12.5r16x10 rim so they look a little 'fatter'

The tire is a bit skinnier than what you asked for (10.5 versus 12.5), but I feel the LJ looks just fine with 33" tires versus 35"... no rubbing issues either. See signature for specs.

I ran 255/85r16 KM2s (33x10) on a 4" lift for a little while. It performed great, but it needed 35s once I was tired of the narrow tires. Now it's got 4" w/ 1.25" bl on 315/75r16 Wildpeaks
