TJ with 2.5\" and 33\'s?

I bought my first Jeep last summer and absolutly love it, a 2004 TJ Sport. I purchased a Skyjacker 2.5" lift soon after. My Question is can I fit my 33/12.50 Mickey Thomson MTZ under it with only fender trimming? Any advise is good advise so lay it on me.

They will fit but you will have some rubbing in moderate to heavy offroading....but that is the least of your problems...

33" tires with a 2.5L and stock gears? You will feel like you just lost have your restore some resemblance of the power you had you will need to change gears front and rear. I believe the 2.5 already has 4.10 gears...which means you would want 4.56 or higher.
