OME 2” lift with 33s question

I just purchased the HD OME 2” lift for my 01’ wrangler and I have a set of tires I took off my truck last year that are 33s. I would really like to use them on the Jeep. My question to y’all is should I order different fenders or just order a 1” body lift so the tires don’t rub? I’m a noob when it comes to this stuff. I will post a picture of the tires I want to add. I don’t think they’re true 33s. Thanks fellas

I've run that combo for 15 years, plus (I run 33x11 equivalent). A 1" BL is pretty much a must. On my particular Jeep, I also had to add a couple of washers to my steering stops to prevent rub on the control arms at flex and lock.

I run 33” Mud Terrain tires with a 2” budget boost. Rubs at full turn, but I never do a full turn. You’ll be fine.

You'll need the BL and probably will still need to adjust bumpstops. 33s really needs 3" of suspension lift to maximize performance.

I think you will find the vast majority of folks here will say the body lift. Just remember there is more to a body lift than just some aluminum pucks. But it seems to help with a lot more than just tires.

You'll need at least 1" of lift. My previous TJ had an OME 2" lift and 33's and required it. That's a great lift, btw.

What do you need then? I thought you would need a motor mount lift, granny mount lift, a transfer cable shift, and a few more little things.

None of those items are required for a body lift. Adjusting the fan shrouds negates the MML. Never heard of a tranny mount lift. Transfer case linkage can be adjusted so a cable shifter is not required.

It's never taken me more than an hour to install one. Well, maybe 2 hours the first time with rust. There's a few unnecessary steps in most BL instructions.

Been my setup for a long time. I installed a MML because of my long term plan. It helps if you know what future mods will be when starting out.
I run 33x10.50s and only needed a lock washer behind the steering stops.

Well, hell. I stand corrected. No wonder everyone says this is the way to do it. I've been on the fence about 33"s because I didnt want to have to redo the spring lift. So you would do this over a 1" coil spacer pick lift?

In my opinion, if you want to run a 33, the OME with a 1.25 BL is the way to go. As stated earlier, you really need a solid 3" of lift to take advantage of 33's. Run a 2" bump stop and you should be good.
A non- Rubicon will need a SYE and CV driveshaft and will benefit from a 1" motor mount lift. My Rubicon ran for several years with the stock control arms, angles, and drive shaft.
Obviously, this is much more pricey than a 2" spacer. Only you can decide what you want from your rig.
For these setups as a package, Dirk at DPG Offroad is very helpful, and great to deal with.

A non-rubicon will not need a SYE and CV driveshaft or better yet 99% will not need them for 2.5"/3" of lift. I say that as every Jeep is different.

Run the OME lift and add 1" body. You will be more than fine for 33" tires. I would recommend that you do a 1" mm also just to help driveline

Jeeps, We like it dirty, rough, and wet!

I don't agree with this. Yes, it can vary but at 3" a lot more will require than don't. Even at 2" I bet it is an issue more than 1% of the time.
