Re: tell me how this sounds? cheap and easy YJ bui
Ive got a BDS 3.5" lift setup on my YJ, with the 5/8" boomerang shackles. Real lift is actually about 4.5". I have TJ flares as well. On the front, I have the BDS kit bump stops, and *just* miss rubbing at full flex. On the rear, I have no bump stops and after a little sawzall work, it doesn't rub. I don't think you're going to get 33" tires under it without at *least* a 3.5" lift kit.
On another note, I installed a Ford 8.8 with 4.10's in the rear, and a D30 from a 4-banger (also had 4.10's) in the front, and with 33" tires I still wish I had more gearing in the technical stuff off road. Next stop (after a new engine - At 204,635 miles, the 4.0 has seen better days) is a 4:1 transfer case.
