New Tires / Lift / Spacing for my 07' JK

Hi All,

I own an 07' Jk 4 dr and sh'es due for some new shoes.

I ran BF Goodrich All Terrains (32") for the last 4 years and they are now done.

I am looking at buying some 33" Goodyear Duratrac to run year round.

They are 285 70 R17 - 11.5 " wide / 32.8" diameter


What lift do I need ?

Will the simple leveling kit be enough ?

Or should I consider the 2.5" Budget boost ?

Or the one with the adapters ?

as for back spacing ...

I plan to use the 17 x 7.5" Jeep rims that came with the vehicle

Should I use 1.25" or 1.5" spacers ?

If I change Wheels should I look for 4.5" or 4.75" backspacing ?

I kinda like these ;

Thanks for your help !

I have an additional question ...

If I go to 35's (GY Duratrac 34.4") can I still run the stock bumper ?

Thanks for any advice
