Best way to fit 33\'s

Hi I'm not having much luck trying to use the search on here, so I thought I'd just ask. I just got my YJ2.5L and can't wait to put either some 32x11.50 or 33x12.50 mud terrains on. What do you guys reccomend as the best way to do that. I was looking at the 4.5" RE heavy duty kit, but realized you need a SYE and other parts to go with it. Maybe a BDS kit, will the 3.5" BDS clear 33's with enough room to flex? I just don't have gobs of money so I wanna stay as cheap as possible to clear 32's even with room to flex. thanks guys let me knwo what you think

You do any lift at all and/or go bigger than 31s on a YJ you are gonna have to bite it and do a SYE. Otherwise, instant mall cruiser, no wheeling for you.

You could most cheaply do it with either a mild body lift, or some judicious fender trimming. Careful though....once you break out the sawzall there's no turning back!

I agree, 1-2" body lift and cut the fenders.
