i have 33x12.5x15 wrangler mtr/k on 15x8 nomads. i have torsion bar crank on the front and shackles on the rear. as it sits now my truck is almost level and i have no rubbing issues on the street. on the trails the front rubs very little when bouncing over stuff but when the rear axle flexs the tires catch the rear fenders pretty good. the tires have chunks out of them from hitting the fenders nad have pushed the fenders out and pulled out the lip

the only thing you may hit is your flares and barly hit your inner fender. rears may catch but it depends on your off set and your tire

Sorry to hijack but just curious if the rear wheel well openings are any larger on the Sport models than the XLT? If so, would the Sport models be able to clear 33x12.5's easier?
