Leaving work last night, and one of the bartenders from downstairs pulls up in a very cool rig.

So I go over we start chatting. Basically he's restored a 79 CJ from the groud up. Frame is a 79, front end 79, tub is a 92 YJ. He's installed new locking hubs on the front, lined the entire tub. Very nice looking rig.

But what confused me - He's running 33's and he says he has no lift. Now both he and I realized that if he didn't anything beyond a gravel road, he would some serious rubbing, but I didn't think you could get 33's under anything (even on the street) without some sort of lift.

The beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad, so I had one more for dessert.

I stuffed 33's under my 63 CJ without a lift. I had like 3 inches from the fenders. it worked for me, it did rub, but i got my lift and everything is better. What did hurt with the rubbing, was my front fenders got dented pretty nicely from the tires.
