33s on as ZR2

The Zr2 came stock with 31 so do you really need a 5" or 6" to fit 33"s under it? If the width is a problem, what about BFG 33x10.50-15s?

Re: 33s on as ZR2

Would the narrower 33x10.50 still rub, or is it just the diameter that makes it run no matter what the width?

How much trimming would be needed?

Would they fit with a lift any smaller than a 5" or 6"? (no body lift will ever touch this truck)

I dont mean to question the integrity or intelegence of anyone out there because you probably have way more experience than I do. I just want to get all my ducks in a row before I give up on the dream. I just like the look of 33"s but dont like having to jump upt to get in.

Re: 33s on as ZR2

body lift, shackels, and a slight t bar crank will get them under there easily

Re: 33s on as ZR2

I dont like body lifts. They just look funny with all that frame exposed.

Re: 33s on as ZR2

with a body lift, a minor t-bar crank, you can fit 33's under there just fine. under hard compression off-road you will scrub, just like stock zr2 with 31's scrubbed off roading. i remember seeing a stock zr2, with a 3" body lift, t-bar crank with 35's for sale on ebay one time.

Re: 33s on as ZR2

Won't shackles just raise the rear 2 in. HIGHER than the front? Or are there shackles for the front too?

Re: 33s on as ZR2

There are no shackles for the front because the front is IFS. Thats where the T-bar crank comes in.

Re: 33s on as ZR2

Well with the 1" or 1.5" T-bar crank, the front levels out with the rear, so putting shackles on the rear will then raise it past the front.

Even with a body lift, that would happen, right?

All this for a pick-up, by the way, sorry!

Re: 33s on as ZR2

Yeah if you put shackles on it and then crank the bars, it will make it set almost like the stock raked look, just 2" higher.

When I started this post I was hoping someone made a 3" or so lift for the ZR2. Im 6'2", so a 3" taller truck would not be an issue, but when you are talking 5" - 6", I really dont want to have to jump up to get in. Thats why I sold my Toyota after only 1 month. Not to mention Im a GM guy at heart anyway.

And before anyone says it, I will repeat my former statment. I dont do body lifts. Just dont like the look. No offence to anyone, thats just my $.02

youll be able to fit a 33x10.50 on stock rims with just a t-bar crank up front to level the truck out.
