Re: YEA! I got rid of my Swampers!
Here is what I know about 33 inch tires on a sammi. Yes they will fit with a SPOA and some longer shackles. The thing is though they fit, they don't fit well. To truly fit a 33 in there you need to move the axle forward a minimum of 1.5 inches. This helps out substantially and allows the tire to turn better and not hit the rear of the fender well. Also the less back spacing that you have causes problems too. It causes the tires to move more to the rear when turning resulting in more rubbing. I think the best way to fit a 33 is to either use YJ springs with a spoa or rear sammi springs up front. Both move the axle forward and provide just enough lift to get those pesky 33's in there.
But I have to agree, 32's work better and work just as well. Heck, they are cheaper too!! But my next rig will have 35's or 36's [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
