OME 2.5" HD clears my 33's, been like this for years, drives better than stock. Just picked up a 1" body lift and it will go on as soon as I can figure out how to raise my src roof rack an inch in the back!

I was looking at the 4.25 combo lift. but as it is I worried about the driveline vibes/ with my state lift laws are changing. The 33's fit I do get some rub on the passenger side swaybar at full left turn, due to still rolling on the stock trackbar. But I just ordered a metalcloak bar. I also installed a MML which helped with some driveline vibes. My current trajectory I am thinking long term a tummy tuck so at that time I will go with a body lift.

honestly I havent flexed it out with the sway bars disconnected, but it does fireroads and dirt roads just fine along with pavement pounding.

I did a 3" zone. Running 33's and have no issues. This is my DD and I do some weekend fun. I am happy with it.

I got about 2.5" from the lift, due to being only a soft top, so I think you will get a little more than advertised with these guys. The BDS shocks get a good rep as well. So if you were wanting something good for a reasonable price that I would recommend that you take the one on the link below into consideration. http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma...5&yr=2003-2006
You are running 33s on the 2" BDS? Assuming you got the 2" considering you mentioned getting 2.5"? I am curious as I just had the BDS 2" installed a few weeks ago with the Fox 2.0 shocks. No body lift or Mml.

2.5" of lift with 33s. Not a lot of clearance.

So for a DD pounding pavement every day you could probably get away with running 33s on 2.5" with no bl or mml without any rubbing or clearance issues? More than likely though if taken on a trail you would have major rubbing issues without a minimum of high clearance fenders? I know what you COULD do and SHOULD do is what creates or reduces problems down the road. I do like the look though, but if i understand functionally it may be an issue?

My brother ran 33s with a 2.25" BB for about a year on the street with no issues. He soon added a BL and then went to a 4" SL and BL, then 35s. It never ends.
