Yes, you can, but you might have some rubbing issues at a full turn and at a flex when on the trail if you are still running at a stock height.

Here's mine with MT Baja Atz's. I do have 1.5" wheel spacers though.

Do I need spacer? Or a small lift like 2'' (without spacer) would eliminate all rubbing issues?

gointohelli, did you have the 33s on with the wheel spacers with out the Taraflex lift? If you did, did the tires rub at all? This is the exact setup I want to run. I read it on another web site (jeepfan i think) and the guy used 1.25" wheel spacers.

Thanks

cim,

I'm really new to all this and after reading the FAQs for newbies on suspension I have even more questions. Thus I'm wondering the same thing, would say 1" spacers do the trick? Although I do like the look of gointoheli's jeep with the 2.5 inch lift. Makes me even more impatient to get mine!

oh ya, being a newbie too, the more i read, the more I got confused

All I want is 275/70 R18 on my stock 18inch wheel to work properly.. Spacer? lift? or both?
