    2.5" lift with 33" tires

    Hey there folks. Sometime in January or February, I'm planning on getting the Jeep lifted. I have a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited 4 door and I'm thinking on a 2.5 AEV lift kit with an aggressive tread 33" tire. Can anyone out there with the same lift and tire size post a photo of their rig. I'm having some trouble deciding if this is the combination that I want and a visual would really help.
    Thanks in advance guys.
    It's appreciated.

    Here's mine. 2" lift with 33" Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs on the stock 18" rims. If I was to do it again, I'd go with a 16" or 17" rim and hopefully not spend as much on the rubber (its hard to find a tire for the 18"s.)

    33's look great on a JK/JKU with stock fenders. If you go with flat fenders you may want to consider 35's or a smaller lift.

    I am in a similar position as you, in Jan/Feb I want to do a lift and tires (just waiting for retro pay). I am leaning towards Rock Krawler 2.5" x-factor and then 35" goodyear duratracs on cragar rims.

    The good news is Rock Krawler should be releasing there new line of triple rate coil springs before I do my build.

    I'd love to go with 35's but I'm not so sure that I would want the flat fenders. I kind of like my colour match stock fenders. I really don't want to go higher than 2.5" either because I'm not willing to regear and change out the drive shaft.
    I hope I can make up my mind before January.

    Not entirely certain about '12s but you can safely go to 3" without having ds issues. At least with 07-11.

    Well, thanks for the replies again guys. Ordered my parts today. Going with an AEV 3.5" lift, AEV rear bumper and tire carrier, Ultra 164 17" rims with 35" Duratracs. Looking forward to the installation which I've scheduled for January.
    I'll be sure to post before and after pictures.

    That's nice for someone who has the space and tools to do so. Others aren't able to do that and have to pay someone to install for them.
    Although I do envy those who do build them, it doesn't make their rigs any better than mine.
