Not a fan of the Ring of Fire
I'm really leaning towards the 33s, but will the stock carrier and hinges support it? That's got to be 80 pounds of tire and wheel.
The tailgate on my '98 disagrees. There has been a 32" tire hanging on it since I bought the Jeep in 2004 and the hinges are still OK.
Dunno if other years are different.
So I got the back end done over the weekend.....Shocks, spacers, springs, control arms, track bar, and end links. Netted exactly 4" of lift (from 2" BDS springs and a 3/4" spacer. I'm assuming it'll settle a bit. Moryde showed up today, but it's raining. Probably tackle that and the front end on Thursday. Wheels should be here tomorrow.
Helluva rake at the moment....

Federal mandate since.......1986, I think.
The federal mandate is for manufactures to sell cars with 3th brake lights, not for what consumers can do with their cars after purchase.
However, that is not the final word, because the states have a say.
The AZ DOT rules state, and I paraphrase, a vehicle only needs one operating rear light. However, if you have two or three lights, they all need to be working correctly.
So what I did, was just delete the third light all together so I have two operable (1 more than require) brake lights.
