Undo the lift

Hey Guys
I am a new Jeep owner and also a Nubee to this forum, I have an unusual
Problem. I recently purchased a 2008 JK that had a 3.25 lift already done. It also
Has a set of Mickey Thompson Baja MTX 33x12.5/17 and Dick Cepex "TORQUE" wheels, the problem is I need to Reduce the lift to as close to stock as possible but I would like to keep the wheels and tires. I am open to any and all suggestions. The why part is too complicate to go into here.
Thanks Jim

What about a performance level kit or basic level kit?

I guess what I am trying to say is how much can I reduce the lift
and keep the 33 in tires and how is the best way to do it.

your 33's can fit the stock suspension.

As dawhitesJKU said, the 33's will fit on stock suspension and you shouldn't have any issues since you have aftermarket wheels. but you can drop down to a leveling kit for less than two inches of lift and have more room to wheel.
