How hard do you guys think it will be to stuff 33" tires under my 2000 Grand Cherokee with a 3.5" lift

you will need to trim the fenders so you dont rub when you hit bumps

if all you want to do is ride on the road with 33s you wont have to trim much, if you plan to go off road you will need to trim a good bit

if i was gona stuff 33's with a 3.5" i would chop my fenders up to the point where they flare out on an angle before it drops back down.
I dont know what i would do about the rear because the door is so close to the well, i think swampy said some thing about using adjustible control arms to push the axle back.

im shure its possible and im shure it can work but it will requre metal cutting and im not shure if u wana do that to ur DD.

if you dont want to trim much then i would find a 5 inch kit

if you found a 4 inch kit you could get by without that much trimming, since you will be on road all the time you wont have the worry of the suspension flexing and rubbing the fenders

AWSOME! at least you will take it off road, well then what i would do is get a 5 inch lift if your budget allows, if not go with 3.5 and run 32s, if you have 16 inch wheels run a 265-75. if you get the 5 inch kit you can run 285-75s with minor trimming

I would just like to point out the fact that depending on what motor you have you might have to regear the differentials. Since it is your daily driver gas milage will suffer if you run 33's without regearing.

I guess it depends on what you require in a daily driver.. I used mine as a daily driver for a while.. Mr. Green

But I am much more comfortable in the Montero..
(by the way.. I was able to fit 32's on my Monty with no lift.... Mr. Green )

the reason i am putting 33 on is because my buddy sank his truck and didnt want to mess around tryin to fix it so he pussed out and bought a little s-10. so im taking the 33 of his hands for 200 bucks there is only about 1500 miles on them, good deal. now what were u guys sayin about regearing? what gear would you guys sugjest? if i dont regear it i will probly mess up my trans after awhile right.
