    Looks good! Any problems with tires rubbing? I have a 2" BB on my 97 TJ. I've been looking for 31" tires to replace the stockers...but would prefer 33" tires if they would fit! Any thoughts from anyone on this?

    Oh well......nothing a little trim with a grinder won't fix! I think I will still keep looking for 31" for now though! Thnx!

    1" BL is cheap and easy and helps to fit 33"s all the better with a BB.

    I don't really want to, but the local cops and inspectors are absolute nazi's about tire coverage. It's my only option

    I ran a 2" BB with 33s for a long time. They didn't rub the flares as long as it stayed connected. One time I popped a link and for the rest of the trail every little bump it chewed flare.




    And WaggyXJ, don't mention a gf unless you want us whining for pics.




    SO PICS OF THE GF PLEASE. THANK YOU.
