JK Unlimited - 33x12 Tires, 16" Wheels, 2.5" of Lift

So - I know someone is going to cry "Search there are tons of pics" but trust me I've been searching for weeks off and on and can never seem to find exactly what I am looking for, which is:

A JK Unlimited with 305/70/16 tires/wheel combo and a 2.5" lift (rough country preferred but any will work)...


I can find tons of pictures of JKs with 33s, but a lot of them run 33s with no lift. Then you have those running 33s with only a 2" budget boost (close but not exactly what I'm looking for). Then you have those running those tire sizes and lift with 15" wheels or 17" wheels and not 16". Or you have those running 33x10.5 instead of 12.5... Then you have most people with a JK and 2.5" lift running 35s. Long story - short, I can just never find exactly what I am looking for so hit me with it, if you've got it...

Most people upgrade to a bigger tire than that, especially with a 2.5" lift.

Yeah - I think that's the problem. I guess I am going to look into "34" or 35s possibly... Was trying to keep this a daily driver as it sees 50-100 miles of highway per day. I was also trying to avoid a body-lift of 1". Won't 35s still rub slightly with 2.5" lift? Ah well, I guess if I'm going to pay to regear I myswell go to 5.13 instead of just 4.56s...

You can do 35's on a 2.5" easily.
