For a perfectly flat surface its ok, but if you hit a speed bump, you'll crush your flairs. the Rubicons suspension is stiffer, not taller than other jeeps. If you want to run 32s, you can get a 2" puck lift. If you want 33s, you can add a 1in body lift to that, or get yourself a minimum of 3.5" suspension lift.

Nope . . . not without breaking out the sawsall and going to town . Even with a 2" BB chances are 32's will rub at full flex. You either need a 4" suspension lift of the combo of a 2" BB and a 1" BL to run the 33's properly.
Bite the hand that feeds you . . . you've had more than enough to eat already.

On the Rubi all you would need is a 2" BB (Budget Boost) and a 1"BL to fit them, along with some shocks & JKS disco's

Depending on your plans and the type of wheeling you plan on doing though, it's usuaully better in the long run, doing the lift right the first time and get an actually lift kit.
