well, your cheapest option, is either an Iron Rock Offroad 3, or a Rough Country 4, and probably some rubicon take offs

Your request is nonsensical. 33 on a GC requires about 6" of lift. Six inches of lift requires a well engineered and extensive system to retain driveability and stay away from DEATH WOBBLE.

I highly recommend using the search button and reading the thousands of posts by the Jeep GC owners that have tried what you are asking and mostly have spent more time and money on in the end to make the GC drive again.

If you want cheap get a 2" BB and 31" tires and prepare your self for the possibility of DW fixes.

If you want 33" pony up the $$ and do it right. After all you have spent money on a luxury SUV you dont want it to drive like crap.

not true at all. plenty of people on here run 33's just fine on 3-4'' of lift. Hell, a guy even had 33's on NO LIFT. you just have to be willing to cut your fenders all the way. a BB and 33's in completely possible, esp. since he wont be taking it off road as he stated. Wheel spacers or new wheels with more BS would be needed to clear the arms but its absolutely possible. DW has nothing to do with any of this other than the bigger tires being heavier. DW can occur on any stock vehicle with a live front axle. Its easily cured in most cases by upgrading any worn steering components and control arm bushings.
