Re: cheapest way to get on top of 33\'s

You already have it.
1.You can uses stardard black "rock crawler" wheels they will rub a bit when all the way over.
2. I ran my 33 with a modified SpOA. (made 1/2" taller spring perch)
I did not need body lift or longer shackels
3. I did all of it for less than 50 buck and you already have half of what you need.
4. I added a leaf from a cj-5 and got an extra inch of lift 3/4 now after sag.
5. Don't forget about doing the shocks
Where did you get those tires 16.5 inch rims???? That might be a problem.

Cheapest? Try a cutting torch... it'll get that excess metal around your wheels out of the way to make room for them big tires. No lift needed.

Re: cheapest way to get on top of 33\'s

they had an article on that in one of the off-road magazines! It looked sporty but I would cut it straight off to the front! yep just go at a angle on the body side to a certain height then just cut it clean off! It seems like it would be dificult to perfectly cut both perfect though??!!
