Looking for photos of 4-door, 2.5 inch lift & 33's

Hey guys- I'm thinking about a 2.5 inch lift (OEM) & putting 33's on my jeep. Trying to decide of 33's are big enough.

I'm planning to keep stock wheels & really leaning toward a more narrow AT tire from interco, so any thoughts or photos there would be awesome

Thanks

2.5" and 35s.... even with OEM fenders 35s were perfect. 33s just look tiny on a 4 door....

This isn't mine, but it's one I saw on another site. It says it's a 2" zone lift w/ 33 x 12.5 on 17x9 wheels.

Yea, it's just shameful to put those "TINY" 33" tires on a JKU--





I don't have any need for 35s

I'm getting conflicting answers & I need solid jk advice

Hey Y'all I'm a Single Mom so I don't have anybody "at home" or any brothers or anything with Jeeps or 4 wheel drives so I'm looking for some solid advice here on what to do with my Rubicon. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I ride thru TN & CO a lot so I definitely want a setup that will get me thru the trails but this vehicle is also an only vehicle and the mud tires that it came with are so chopped up its not funny. Despite regular maintenace neither Jeep nor Goodrich will warranty the tires and I didn't really want to replace everything so soon but since I'm in that position now I'm going to go ahead & do it all I guess.

I wanted to get a Teraflex Lift of 2.5 inches
I wanted to replace the factory wheels/rims with nicer ones
and I wanted to run 35 inch tires

I was advised by four wheel parts here in houston that the teraflex shocks the lift came with weren't very good and that their pro-runner shocks were much better quality so I went with those (though nothing has been installed yet!)

They also told me there would be no issues with this set up "rubbing" and that it shopuld be fine. I saw this also on the teraflex website that 35's were ok, and I do not plan to cut or trim my factory fenders i like them, so I definitely want to be sure this won't rub but there have been a few places on here where I've seen that it will.

I've also been advised I will need a new tire carrier as the factory carrier willl not be strong enough for a 35 inch tire without pulling on the door. Is this true?

And Rock & Roll Offroad advised me that on a 2.5 inch lift they would not put anything bigger than a 33 & that the guys a 4 wheel parts are wrong.

I would again really appreciate any help you guys can give me. This is going to be a very big undertaking for me & i'd like to get it right the first time.

That said somone also mentioned having to re-gear with 35's is that necessary?

Thanks in advance y'all!
Are there better shocks I should go with?
