    33s on 2.5 inch lift I have 33x9.5s with a BDS 2.5 inch lift. I have not had an issue with rubbing. This works great for everything I wanted to do and rides better on the street than when I had 31x10.5. Just another option. Jay

I have a 9/74 FJ 40 with a hacked together wiring harness, thanks to PO and me, but I do not see the fusible link. On the other FJ's I have seen, a 78 and FJ60, the link was very near the battery. From my...
