    some people have no problem with up to 4" lift with the transfer drop. others have vibrations that drive them nutz at 3". You should b able to run 33's with 3-3.5". if u are going wider than a 10.50, make sure you get a better offset rim and tubular control arms or you will rub the crap out of them. my last 97 I was running 4" and 35's no problem, but i did use the transfer drop and left my sway bars connected most of the time. Hope it helps
