2.5" OME suspension lift, and 1" body lift would be my first choice. Wheel size 15 x 8 and 3.75-4" back space

33's are fit commonly in ways on TJ's:

1. 4" suspension lift, with ~2" bumpstop extensions in front and ~2-2.5" in the rear. Requires a SYE/CV shaft.
2. 2-3" suspension lift, with a 1.25" body lift, with ~1.25" bumpstop extensions in front and ~1.25-1.5" in the rear. The 1.25" BL usually accompanies a 1" Motor Mount Lift to offset some of the driveline angles.

Either way you go, figure on some or many of the following components: longer front brake lines, extended sway bar links front and rear, gears, brake and steering upgrades to accommodate larger tires, SYE, CV shaft, bumpstop extensions, new shocks, adjustable track bars, and a rear track bar bracket.

I wouldn't recommend anything from rough country. I have an OME 2" lift with with their nitrocharger shocks and it rides great. Rough country is cheap and their shocks ride horrible! I'd definitely go with a different brand. Look into ome, Currie, metalcloak. As for your body lift I went with jks but most companies are title for tat with those. If you look into OME if your rig is heavier make sure you get the heavy duty springs and possibly the 934 zj front springs
