Just the 2" body lift wouldn't work for 33's. Do the 5" suspension and forget the body lift.
I got 3" body lift and 2.5" suspension and 33's clear pretty good. [cheers]

i agree with the above 5'' susp is the way to go but its gonna cost you alot more than just the lift cause yer gonna need a sye kit and a cv shaft too

heres a pic of my jeep with a 3 '' body lift and 31'' tires

i dont think 33s would fit [16]
















heres a pic with a 6'' susp lift added

now i can clear even 36''



my advice is this if ya dont want a lot of bullshit buy the rubicon express lift
from thrills it will alow you to clear 33'' with out the sye kit or cv shaft and from what i hear its has a good ride too

heres a pic of marks jeep aka hotwheels he has the rubicon 4.5 with 33 swampers and it worked great for him

[cheers] the 2" body lift i got came with instructions and all....there is a small amount of welding to do if you follow all the instructions, make the gear shifts longer and some brackets for the rad suport i think. (I havnt put mine in yet)

...depending on who is helping, what tools you have, and what kit you bought you should be able to get er done in an afternoon

Did ya buy the lift new? what make?

The rubicon suspension kit i put in works kickass[36] I have been using it for allmost a year now with no troubles, WITHOUT the sye kit and driveshaft mods. all i did was double the t-case drop.

Im not to sure, the boy friend gave it to me and im not sure its for a jeep. He had it from a few years ago. But i dont think ill be doing it this way anymore. I have checked out my options and am waiting on a response from friend on the suspension lift and what ill need. But thanks for responding anyway!!!

definetly go without the body lift. my jeep came with a 2" body lift and 33s but it never seen the dirt before. tires would rub constantly, it was not fun. I added a 4" lift shortly after i bought the jeep

I cracked my block and I broke/dented in my U joint. All good now just have to fix the massive leak in the engine.[36]

I think the girl who owned it before me had this same problem, I think it was cracked when i bought it:dontknow: and i made it worse on my B-day??!!
