To lift or not to lift?

I am looking at a few mods for my new wheeler. I am definately doing wheels & tires. Considering 33's vs. 35's. I know well enough of back spacing, 35's def need a lift, etc. Question is, My Rubicon seems to have a descent height and was wondering if anybody has simply done wheels and 33" tires with out a lift? If so, any pics??? And, could I simply get away with the cheapy 2" lift to fit current OEM suspension to enhance the look of the 33's?

33s an a little trimming work very well on JKs as do 35s with a 2in lift and trimming. depending on your skill with a saw you can run 35s on a stock height JK

I'm running 285/70/r 17. From what I understand about equal to a 32. I put it on stock sport. Have no clearance issues only mild rub in reverse with a full pinned turn. Have it stock no spacers. On my jeep the tires alone raised the body appx 2 inches. I ran some good sand dunes and felt real good. Only thing is I think the rubi. Is an Inch higher. I know a 32 will fit no issues I imagine you could get away with a 33 wo a lift but probably spacers will be needed. But please don't make your decision on my word alone like regan said. Trust but verify.
