    Running 33\'s with only 1\" bodylift

    Sorry to rehash an old subject... Need an answer but don't have time to search right now...

    Due to my current bodymounts problem, I'm considering yanking my 3" bodylift and going with the ORD 1" (which was in my future plans anyway) when I replace all the bushings (again, ORD). I'm currently running 33's on stock suspension with a tiny bit of body trimming. As long as I stay on the roads (or very smooth trails), will I be OK like this for a little while? Thanks...

    If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style...

    If you already have trimmed the fenders some, you should probably be okay if you don't get the truck really flexed up. Personally, I think the fender trimming does more for tire clearance than the 1" lift.

    I'm running 33's with no lift.
    I just trimmed the fenders a little.
    And I hit some pretty good trails and I am good to go.

    my truck's not dirty, it's earth tone paint

    I'm running 33s on 8 inch rims and stock suspension. Only problem I had was right side was hitting when cranked, but I adjusted the steering stops. I do have a pic of the suspension flexed, but I'll have to look for it.
