Actually no, I would have if I bought the rims but I didn't. I did try to see if it clears on the rear and it did on my 95 2500 with the dana 60. I never tried the front though.

I dont know who bogger boy is, but I got the rims, and I don't think there will be much trouble clearing anything up front. There is about 1.5" from the hub of the rim to the back of the rim

I forgot which end I tried, I thought it was the rear.
And those little 33" boggers were ripping it up today with my jeep, there was debris everywhere from people getting stuck with inferior, wimpy tires, but not me this time. It took 10 minutes to take the old tires and logs out that people put in there... I wanted to take out the big dodge but I didn't want to get it all dirty yet until I install the new lift.

alright, the front is the concern, but with my incredibly deep dish rims, there shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks anyways
