I will be getting a Rubicon Express lift kit in order to run 33" tires. Will be going with Pro Comp 7031 wheels (15 x8) and Duratrac tires. However, the Rubicon Express 3.5" and 4.5" are the same price for the Superflex kit. It would be nice to have the option of running 35's later on (maybe with a 1" body lift), so wondering if it makes sense to get the 4.5" lift immediately? Any drawback to going with the higher lift, either in performance or extra modifications needed?
I run the 4.5" springs with 35x12.50 KM2s. I put the 5.5" on at first and it was WAY too high for me. The 4.5" gave me more than 4.5" of lift but it was enough to comfortably clear the 35's. The 3.5" should be good for 33's.

Let me know if you have other questions!
