No complaints.

I have a fully stock '13 JKU, and I wanted to put a set of 33's under mine. Would I have to do a leveling kit and regear like you guys are saying for the even bigger tires? I need to keep the stock suspension until September when I get my bonus from work then I can upgrade the suspension. Knowing all of this, is putting a set of 10.5/33/R15s on my Jeep ok to do without having to regear/ install a leveling kit?

You should be fine with no regear with auto or manual. You dont say what gears you have but still, your only increasing 1". 15" wheel/tires? What size is your wheel now? Do they still put 15" wheels on the newer Jeeps?

Also, I thought 33's were 11.5" wide? What tire you looking at?

I didnt think they went down to 15" any longer. If hes thinking of saving money by getting 15's he needs to make sure the wheels will fit over the brakes.

I have 16s stock right now. They look ugly and like I have lil Car tires on a Jeep. My Jeep is a 6-speed man with 3.73 gears. The wheels I have lined up are going to clear the calipers. I had my mechanic buddy check them out to make sure. I was going to try and get 33/10.5/15. They make that size but u have to find them. I would think about going with the 11.5s as long as they will clear with stock finders( flares will be upgraded in June to flats)

Oh forgot to ask dose that mean I have to do the leveling kit? Not really sure what that actually is but I would assume it raises the front of the JK to be level with the back. What exactly is it and what do I have to foot install it? Is it a kit with instructions? Dose it take long? Any special tools required? Do I need to move/modify much? When I get the 2" lift in September I'm going to take it to a mechanic friend to have it installed...dose the leveling kit stay on after the 2" lift is installed or dose it have to be removed?

If the backspace on the wheels is 4" or less you will clear 11.5 in turning. Stuffing will possibly get some rub but longer bumpstops will take care of that. The leveling kit will help alot up front.

The leveling kit is just what it says? Levels the front to be even with the back of the Jeep in hight?
