Yes, even with 31" tires you'll rub with stock springs. 33" tires would need a 4" lift and a lot of trimming.

1st how will you be using your Jeep? If just for show then no it's not worth it as you also must regear for 33" tires so add another $1500 or so for gears.

My friend has over 4" of lift and 265/75-16(32s) and had some rub. He had to do a lot of trimming to get it to work. Then he re-geared to get his power back. I personally don't think it would be worth it.

Dang, I just checked the dates, this was really brought back from the dead huh?

Sounds like a $1200 headache. Especially at 12.5" wide. It's just not gonna work unless you have some very deep pockets

Edit: Also do you have pics?
