Going from 275/70/16 to 285/75/16 tires

Going from 275/70/16(31") KO to 285/75/16(33") KO2 on an '07 Jeep JK... what all would I need to have clearance while on/off-road?

Also adding a winch/steel front bumper so expecting a bit of sag in the front.

Wanting to prevent from rubbing, just want a bit of a tire size change without breaking the bank and going to 35's.

Those numbers mean something, see this pic to see what your old tire is compared to what the new one will be.

I am running 285/75R16's on a 2016 Rubicon and have not had any issues on or off road, including with the front swaybar disconnected. I am sure you could get it to rub if you really tried, but I have not encountered any problems and drive my Jeep offroad somewhat often for work.
I occasionally wish I would have went with 35's because my mileage in town sucks anyway with the 285's, but my Jeep has taken me everywhere I want to go and I don't have any "mod issues". It's a great daily driver size IMO and the 16's save a good amount of cash.

You don't have a lift or spacers or anything? It would be a daily driver myself as well, however I don't drive very many miles as my commute is pretty short but do the occasional trips to offroad a few times a year so not to worried about gas mileage.

My Jeep is a stock Rubicon with an ACE Rear Bumper and tire carrier and Shrockworks skids. No spacers, lift, etc. It is lower if anything due to the bumper, skids and Tuffy box.
I don't rock crawl, but it get in some pretty rough terrain and have not experienced any issues. The KO2's are great, just stay out of the mud.

Interesting. Curious if the Rubicon would have any difference compared to the X when it comes to this case... otherwise that is a pretty cheap upgrade.
