You're in luck, I just had some installed yesterday, i'm loving it. They're the BFG KM2's - 33's on stock Rubicon 17" rims (I'm from Australia, not sure if it's different in the US):

33's are only 1" larger diameter than stock Rubicon tires. In my opinion, if you have a Rubicon, there isn't much to gain for the amount of expense it is of going only 1" bigger unless your tires are worn out and need replacing anyway. That's only 1/2" increase in radius, so your Jeep will only sit up 1/2" higher.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.

What kind of bumper is that? does it have brackets for being a tow vehicle?

Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Off topic, so do you have amber blinkers (repeaters) in the rear and side? What about rear fog light? I am always interested in different version of the same vehicle from different part of the world. Thanks

Point taken on board, and completely agree - however the state I live in here in Australia, is very unreasonable in terms of legalities in changing tyre size. Believe it or not, on road this is the largest legal size I can go. There may be changes to this in the near future to run 35's (which I will do eventually) - however at this stage I am keeping it all legit. Having said that, it is okay to fit larger size tires for off road use, but right now its too inconvenient to change wheels/tires everytime I take it offroad - plus there are further caveats to legal lift sizes too!! I wish we could mod our Jeeps as easily as you can there in the US! My main reason for going to 33's in the KM2's was for better traction off road, and strenght in the sidewalls. Others I go wheeling with in our Jeep club had the same stock tires, and were no good in mud / wet rock, and damaged easily. So the KM2's was not a hard decision to go ahead with, despite it only being 33's.

The bumper is from TJM, a local 4WD accessories manufacturing company, my 2" lift is also from TJM, I don't think they export their products overseas.

Yes, yes and yes! The one thing the Aussie models have, that I don't think is available in the US, are the electronic adjustments for the front driving lights. Very handy if your Jeep is lifted, at a switch of a button it can move 3 notches down, and one up from factory level.

I've got 36K on the stock 32" tires so I'm going to need new ones. the kicker is, I can't find the same stock tires... in 33's, for less than twice as much as 32's. WTF?

MRSIG... where did you pic yours up? I can't find any online vendors that have them.
