lift and tire upgrade advice

I have a 2010 jk unlimited with the standard 6 speed transmission. I live in an area where taking it off road doesnt leave me with many options so its primarily an on road vehicle. However I would like to make it look better by maybe adding a small lift and a slightly larger tire. Im interested in any ideas from members who have some experience with this and which lifts and tires they would recommend. Thanks Tom

I just added a leveling lift and 33's.
Drives like stock! REALLY!!!
Can't say enough good things about the rubber and the hub centric RR wheels are awesome!!!

I'm a fan of the look of 35's on the 4 door. They just look right to me.

Good luck with the decision, as it is not an easy one!!!

I can speak for the crowd with 2.5" lift and 35" tires. I love the look of my jeep but if its not going to be used off-road at all maybe you should consider what Jeepersteveb did with his jeep.
It will save you money and with the 33" tires you will enjoy highway driving more. Also, if you did take it off-road once in a blue moon you will still be able to get a lot further than a pickup truck.

You can definitely go with a small leveling kit like the Mammoth Leveling Kit to give you a little life without changing much else. It'll let you fit up to 35" tires on the road if you wanted to. You will want to check what gearing you have to decide how big of a tire to go with. Let me know what questions you have or if you'd like a quote on anything!

+1.
Get an inexpensive leveling kit, doesn't matter what brand really.
if all you want are 33s, you should be totally fine.
As Ryan mentioned, if you decide to go with 35" tires, you might want to look into regearing because you'll start to feel sluggish on the highway. But if you don't have a problem with that, then you'll be just fine with 35s, the gears aren't "required"

If you want a great highway ride, look at the AEV 2.5" lift. I hear it is fantastic on the road. And still very capable off-road. At 2.5" of lift, 35's (or 37's with flat fenders, and a bit more upgrades...) would look great on it.

As said before, 33's give it an aggressive look, and do not take much $$ to make it happen.
