33s on a 7.5 rear?

Im looking into getting 33s but i only have a 7.5 rear. I read somewhere that 33s are about the max that should be put on that axle. I just wanted to know if anyone is running that combo or ran that combo and their experience with it.

Thanks for any input

it pretty much depends on what gear set ya got, but yeah no bigger than 33's. And try to get a 8.8 just to upgrade to a stronger axle

Good chance I'll have an 8.8 from my wife's wreck soon. 4.10 gears, open. I'll also be coming to York for the Jeep show the 3rd week in July. Might be able to haul it down if you are interested. PM me and we can work something out.

You would have extra shafts, as the 7.5s are the same as the Ranger 8.8s. Only ask that I get the 7.5 to make "other" things worthy of that turd.....
