T-bar crank + 33"s?

Hey lads,
So I just cranked my t-bars and it looks great (I got it aligned too). Now I'm looking at my fenders thinking I may be able to get 33s in there, I'm currently running 31s (30.9 technically). After searching the forums I've gotten mixed messages about whether it will work or not and I was hoping some of you that have done it could include some pics and explain why it is or isn't a good idea.

Here's what it looks like now:

You will need Pre 08 keys cranked to be able to fit 33's

In 08 Rangers got lower index keys to make them sit lower in the front

you will be able to run 33's no problem on factory wheels or wheels with similar backspacing but you will not be able to fit a 12.5" wide tire. either you will rub the inside wheel well when turning or hit the fender lip when the suspension compresses if you go offroad.
