    \"gotta have 33\'s\"

    Alright, I want 33's, BAD! I can't afford the gas mileage, on anything above that, or below that, for that matter, but I gotta have them...so? Will they clear STOCK? I want 33x12.5's not skinny pizza cutters, and in the BFG AT flavor. They will not see overly abusive wheelin', but it will be done quite a bit this summer and in months to come. I was told that you have a 2 inch lift that is something other that blocks. How much would it cost to replace my front leaf packs with arched leaves that have 2 inches of lift? I will block the rear, or add-a-leaf if possible. I wanna run 15x8 eagle 589's. So, what can you do for me, and how much will it cost? I am on a BUDGET!

    You should really try their web site. www.offroaddesign.com They have a shackle reversale kit that can get you 2.5" (I think its 2.5 anyway) in the rear. And I think they also sell springs that can get the lift you need in the front. But the Shackle reversal is more expensive than blocks. So if your looking for the cheap route that may not be the best bet. But check the website. Most of the stuff you asked can be found on there.

    Some can fit them with a stock suspension but if you use it for Off-road you will probably rub the fenders.... Put them on and see if they will rub. If so, you may want to go with a 2.5" lift or so...

    I have 33x12.5x15's on 15x10's . No lift in the front & Add-a-leaf in the rear . It scrubbed so I followed the handy info on the Good Ol' How to Fender Trim in the TECHNICAL SECTION on this site . They used a SAWZ-ALL but I didnt have one so I used a 4 " grinder ( I am now officially an artist with a grinder ) I will now have to get the gap covered with a little help from the Local Smash Repairer . I have tested it & there is no scrubbing any where .
