3.5" lift with 33's

Does anyone have pics of a jeep with a 3.5" lift and 33's? I am looking at doing the rock krawler 3.5 lift kit and some 33s for now so i do not have to change my gears and would like to see how it is going to look.

You can fit 33s without a lift. Go for at least 35's at that height.

I have a 3.5" lift up front (2.5 in rear) and my 35's look tiny:

i second that you dont need 3.5" for 33" tires. at most a 2.5" and then the 33s still look small.

I'm running a Clayton 3.5" with 33" Coopers. It's not as bad as you would think. Granted, I will be moving to 35's or 37's, but, have been rolling like this for a while now.

Is this the RC 3.25" lift? if so that is the same setup I have here (but I also added the 1.25" bl) and Im running 37s.

Thanks for the pics. I would like to go bigger but do not really want to regear right now. I drive over 100 miles a day for work so i am thinking if i went with 35s it would kill my mpg.

Mr. T,

How do you rate the Cooper STT on road and highway usage ? I know that they are best in class for off-road ... I'm near to buy a set of 285/70R17 for my Rubi.

What is the size of your wheels ? Looks like 17" but not evident on the picture ...

Thanks

Honestly, I have over 40K on my coopers and they still have a boatload of tread left. I am very impressed with how they hold up. Offroad, they haven't let me down and on-road the do just fine. It's my DD and I'd strongly consider getting them again if these ever wear out. They are sitting on 16 x 8 procomp wheels at the moment. I have no real complaints on the coopers. They ride smooth, have a nice little hum to them and have lasted longer than I would have expected. I don't think you'd be disappointed.
