Default looking at 33's

i ride on a first gen and have like a million inches of clearance, measured and it would appear they fit, but i'm thinking there are unseen limitations. any help? i already looked at the tire sizes post, and most others, but there seems a lack of info for first gens

Here are a couple pics. The tires won't fit stock. You need to either lift, trim the fenders or a bit of both.

With 3"s of body lift you only need to trim in about 1.5" on the edge of each fender like in Hanr3s pics. Are you planning of some sort of lift?
