33x13.5's on TJ w/RE 3 1/2" and 3.73 gearing

I have a 2005 TJ Sport that I am putting a RE 3 1/2" lift on. I want to run 33x13.5's on 15x10 steelies with a 3.73 gearing. Will it work OK? If so, what should the backspacing on the wheels be? Thanks.

yes it will be OK. The bs needs to be at least 3.75. You might wanna ask these caliber questions on JF or JU before you start getting harrassed

Sweet. I've been waiting for one of these for a while. They keep me entertained @ work.

So I'm not a total unhelpful ass, those 3.73s are going to suck w/ 33's.


Now where's my popcorn?

umm for one RE's website should tell you that 33's will be fine, its what the damn thing is designed for. 3.73s are liveable but not ideal. THIS IS NEWBIE.

I think you will have axle trouble with those, better go rockwells. The stock gearing in the rocks will be plenty.

Yep. The rockwells are a direct bolt in, and its not too hard to find rockwells with the 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern.

Dude grow a sack. My moms tj has a 6" long arm kit and 35's. And its her daily driver. She even can get in it in her skirt. 33's will fit with a spacer lift.
