tire size
i have a 3.5 rock krawler kit for my 2010 cherokee 3.7 im thinking of putting 1" coil spacers in for little more lift is this going to be ok and whats the biggest tire i can put on there i was think of the super swamper ssr 32/11.5 17 on my stock rims but i really like the baja claw but its a 33 will a 33 fit or would it look weird with this lift i really dont want to hack up everything but little trimming is ok i need all the help i can get thanks

Re: tire size
General concensus is that any higher than the RK kit, without using a proper lift kit, can cause severe damage to the upper ball joints. So unless it's only going to be a mall crawler, not a good idea. 33" will fit if you go with the coil spacer, but you'll need a 1.25" wheel spacer to keep the tire out of the upper ball joint. you'll need to do the "pinch weld mod" for clearance.

Re: tire size
It's not good idea. The bolt of upper ball joint will not reach knuckle. I would suggest to use complete 4" lift kit...
