what kind of difference?

Right now my 95 YJ is on 35's with the 2.5 and 5 speed geared with 4.56's. I have the change to trade my 35/12.5/15 original mtrs for 33/12.5/15 in the same flavor. Will I really notice a difference in daily driving? Need some quick opinions thanks!

Oh definitely yes. That poor engine struggles enough as is. MPG should also improve.

It'll be easier to tow. If you tow anything with 35's or higher the wheels get kind of wabally and its harder to keep control

Thats a function of sidewall height, ply count, and load rating.

Real question, why would you tow anything with a lifted jeep anyway. Stock they are only rated to around 2k. Lifting it only hurts that.
