Based on your build thread it looks like your using RE 4.5" coils in the front. You don't need to remove your flares to make 33's fit if you don't want to. Just trying to save you a bit of work, but they will fit if you just trim in the correct spots. We're running 33's on my wife's XJ with the RE 3.5" lift (so 1" lower than you are" and have not touched the flares besides cutting them even with the body lines.


We cut the fronts even with the bumper line, than the rear we cut even with the body fold line. We than cut metal out (about 1.5") from that body line down to the rocker mount. We've retained the inner fender liner as well. Here are a few pics to show you with 33" Maxxis Bighorn's with the RE 3.5" Superflex lift.
