great info/thread here guys. Been struggling with lift / tire options for too long now, even though I'm happy to throw money at this problem! Still want to do it right and had been reading/hearing conflicting info till this thread. This discussion is pushing me toward OME 2.5 (2") with 33s on my 2001 wrangler sport. I saw another guy recommend the best place to buy the lift, i'll check into that. Any recommendation on the 33s?
The OME 2.5" suspension lift is a fantastic lift (I run it myself). However, you'll want to add a 1" body lift to for 33"s, as the 2.5" lift on 33"s is just a little tight (I have pictures if you want them).
My cousin is running 33 Pro comps on a 2.5 rubicon? and he said he's had no issues. Some in the thread seem to say the same. Mostly mud down here (vs rock), so maybe not as big an issue with rubbing?
Is it easy to add the 1" BL later if I decide I need the add'l clearance?
As for tires, any issues with the 33" Goodyear Wranglers?
If you’re going off-road, your going to likely articulate, you need to bumpstop accordingly to be safe and not rub. Yes, it’s easy to add the 1” BL later. If you did you could remive some of your bumpstop. The BL has several benefits, but one important one is the ability to run bigger tires. 3.25-4” is common for 33’s. 2.5” is good with 32’s
Here's my TJ with the 2.5" OME lift and 33" tires:
And here is my TJ with a 4" lift and 33" tires:
Adding a 1" body lift is cheap and easy. I'm talking about $120.
I have the 2” OME lift and 1.25” jks BL and I clear 33s with ease. I think all the kits come with different size springs lol. If your all street then the kit will be fine with 33s if you go over any bumps you’ll be needing new fenders.
As for 33’s, what are you going to be doing with your Jeep? Is it your DD? Do mud terrains bother you? I’ve run the GY MT/R with Kevlar and liked them. Now I run Cooper STT Pro’s and like them too.
