Post 33x12.5, 3.75 BS /w 1"BL + Torsion Crank

Well.. I suppose I can say I successfully joined the "WILL THIS FIT?!?" question...


Just got my 15x8's in from Alon.. and originally my plan was to get some 32x11.5's... was rethinking, considering I may possibly be doing a 1" bodylift real soon here (Asked Shane about it earlier).

I'm sure I will get a slight bit of rubbing, but do you think with my current setup.. Ive got about a 2" Front Crank, and planning on a 1" Bodylift, will the rubbing be all too bad by chance? 33x12.5 on a 3.75" backspace....

Not interested in pictures really or anything, just a little yes/no with an explanation or suggestion would be fantastic :-)

Find a local guy w/ 33x12.50s......and i'll throw them on and tell ya the results!! The rear your fine.....it's the front that's questionable.

I know you can do 33x10.50, Derek had that setup with cranked bars.

For street use you should be fine, but any kind of trail riding they are going to rub.

Here mine when I had 33x12.50x15 SSR's on 15x8's with 3.75 back spacing.

Not too bad, Im guessing the usual turning backwards while cranking the wheel causes it to rub a bit as well... Definitely knew about the rear being fine.. plus with my Monomax's even a big load doesnt sag it at all... ugh, its always the front that matches, it looks lieik a pretty tight fit... if I had a buddy I might end up doing a 3" bodylift to make it fit a ton better, You hav eany experience doing the 3" Shane?



Just wanting to set myself up so when I do end up getting a suspension lift, I dont have to worry about buying new tires that will make it match well

if you are running like a BFG or something similar you should be ok, the Super Swamper I was running run a little larger then most tires. I did have to trim the front valance and the fender flare some.

Ya know, I'll go ahead and get them anyway.. Why the heck not? I will have my stock wheels and my toyo's still mounted and balanced, if they rub too much, I'll just pull em off and wait till my lift is on, Whetehr its body or superlift.. but if its a bodylift, I can get that done pretty quick.. another 2 weeks or so

Chad...that was before the 1" body right?? Or is that with the 1"??


Mike....no experiece with the 3"......yet. Mine will probably be ordered tomarrow or the next day....just gotta go order it. Better yet, if you want to do the bodylift, why don't we have a body lift mod day get together!>???? I've got all the tools and air here.

Yeah, I think it may be a bit too tight fo rme with just a simple 1" bodylift.. Im thinking perhaps a 3" bodylift day might be in store.. hoping all vehicles can get done in a day lol, or turn it into a two day thing.. I remember hearing about some guys getting it done in a couple short hours, considering they knew just what they were doing, heh

Dang nabit, was hoping I woudl be in the clear to go ahead and order one after my paycheck today.. sadly, its only ringing up 52 freaking hours in 2 weeks.. Damned this lodge, that, plus benefits sucking out my cash (70 bucks a check) and its not being fun at all.. bills to pay, gas to pay, I'm used to getting twice this amount.. *sigh*

Oh well, I guess I have to hold off at least anotehr paycheck sadly.

Yeah, for sure bud!

My (hopeful) plan will be.. get my tires so I can get them mounted and balanced.. order up the bodylift, then I can toss the tires in my truck along with a few tools n such, and make a quick roadtrip on over when Ive got 2 or 3 days off.. A mod day cant be complete without adding another 2 inches with the tires ya know
