    I just bought a 2013 2 door Wrangler withh 33's but the Jeep had the stock carrier and tire on it. I just bought a Smittybuilt heave duty carrier and it alone weighs a ton. with the carrier, rim and 33, will it "sag" my back end? Jeep has a lift....pictured.

    You should be fine. If it says at all, it shouldn't be much. If it does happen to sag, you can get a small 1/2" spacer for the springs.

    Fwiw, I'm running an aftermarket tire carrier, and 33's and it didn't say.

    Should be fine...you did the right thing upgrading the stock tire carrier to handle the 33s
