I guess I don't understand some of these comments - my comments in CAPS:

****From what I can see, you'll need a few additional things:

1. Extended brake lines (18" or longer)

WHY WOULD HE NEED THESE IF HE'S JUST ADDING A 3/8" LIFT SHACKLE AND A 1" BODY LIFT? SHOULDN'T MATTER.

2. Extendend travel shocks (at LEAST 4")

SAME QUESTION.

3. Extended trac-bar (JKS)

AGAIN.

4. Extended bump-stops (3.5 to 4")

THIS COULD HELP IF HE HAS INTERFERENCE, BUT WOULD LIMIT ARTICULATION.
You may bottom out on the shocks if you are right at the limit now, but 3/8" extra is not a lot - your existing shocks may have that travel in 'em. I would go with a longer shackle, not longer than 1" over stock, a 1" body lift AND TJ flares together, or a 2" body lift. Some people don't like body lifts over 1". This should get the 33s under there, provided your springs haven't sagged. Keep in mind, my 4" suspension, and 1" longer shackles still give me interference in back with my 33 x 12.5s on 8" wheels, but the springs have sagged considerably.

Just my opinion,
Good luck
Pete
