33x12.5" tires on 2.5" suspension lift

Hi there.
I'm currently restoring my Jeep and I'm about to change the whole suspension system.
I'm planning on using 33x12" tires. Do you think 2.5" lift will be enough to go with? I'm afraid that 4"/4.5" will be too much and less stable on the road. I might use longer shackles to gain some more height(0.5-1" lift).
What do you think?
I'm between Old Man Emu and Rubicon Express. Is there any better brand.
Send me any picture(s) of 33x12.5" tires on 2.5" suspension lift.
Thanks.

Xenios

READ!, it is either a YJ or a CJ with the suspension not too different in the two. You really should have 3-3.5" to run 33's on those models.
