3.5" lift with 33" tires photos

Is anyone running a 3.5" lift with 33s? I am considering doing so but would like to see how it looks.. I still have stock flares. If you could post a picture that would be awesome!

I'll be going from a 2" BB to a 3.5" lift next week. To me, the 33" tires I have now already look too small for the JKU, so I'm going to swap in 35" MTRs. I don't think you'll find many folks running 33s with a 3.5" lift as most going with a 3.5" lift are looking to fit 35" or 37" tires for addt'l diff clearance.

Do you have a 2 or 4 door? Most 3.5" lifts on a 2 door are going to net you at least 4", so there'll be a LOT of space between even your stock fenders and a 33" tire. Maybe not so much on a heavier 4 door.

I have since changed my mind and decided to go with 35" mtz but mine is a 2 door. I was just curious how it looked, I was thinking of lifting it since I'm running 33s stock and they're brand new so I was gunna let them run their course. Thank you tho!

I just installed a Rough Country 3.5" with BFG A/T KOs 270/70R18 basically 33" 10.50's. Didn't go with 35's because didn't want to chance the warranty and 35's to me even though it's lifted, it looks stock with larger tires. This is my wife's jeep and the most off road it's gonna see is gravel roads and the occasional dirt road, we have dirt bikes for going off the beaten path.

Here's a few of mine. 3.5" Metalcloak lift, 33x13.5x17 Iroks

While I find the tires a little small (appearance wise) the plan has always been to go to 35s. I just got too good of a deal on the 33s to pass them up. I've been running them for 1.5 yrs now, and plan on trying to get another 10 mths or so out of them. Then I'll go to 35s.
