What size lift on my Jeep jk

Have 33 nitto trail grapplers with no lift. With stock fenders. I want the flat fenders but I also want a lift. I don't want to make my tires look small. What size would be just right for occasional off roading (mud/dunes). Thank you!

Cut your stock fenders (free flat fenders). I would just level it out if you dont plan on going with larger tires later on.

Flats will make 33s look small. Add some lift and they'll look like Prius tires.

ncb is right, you'll look like you are rolling on roller skates.
BUT, if you plan to go with larger tires and plan to do the DIY flat fenders (as I have done), follow this video made by Charles... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/i...tting-1309156/

I agree that the tires will look small. Just giving the OP a cost-effective option for flat fenders. I would move up to 35s, cut the fenders, get some 1.5" wheel spacers, trim the pinch weld and a 2.5" coil lift. Solid setup.

I cut my fenders a few months ago. I left them on the Jeep (some take them off). Taped the shape I wanted and went to town with a jig saw. Then bought two amber, 1" LEDs and mounted them into a 1" hole I drilled in the body on the very front under the fender. Took about an hour for the whole thing.
