Little Lift Kit Conundrum

Hey guys,
I'm new to this forum and having just recently got my liscence new to Jeeps too. I'm starting to mod my 07 2 door jk and I'm stuck with what lift would be best for me.
Right now, and until I save enough for 285/70/17 Duratracs, I'm on the stock 32s. So my question is, what lift would y'all suggest that won't dwarf the 32s and will look good with the 33s? my springs are 13/56, and everything else is stock.
Thanks in advance

I think if I were you, I'd upgrade factory springs. Someone will speak from experience, but I think you'd get the lift you want from stiffer OEM springs. 19/59??

Some pics in this thread should give you some ideas. Most of the lifts are 2-2.5".

Show me your 33" with 2" lift photos.

I had 14/55's on mine. I lost 1" up front when I added my new XHD bumper and winch. I went to 19/60 and got my inch back plus 1.25" up front (Added 1" teraflex spacer also for a total of 2.25" from original stock). I got 1.75" in rear with hardtop on and it went up to 2" when I switched to soft top.

So as I set now, I have 2.25" up front and 2" rear from stock.

Just save and do it right once. If you aren't going to 35s then you have no need to change anything.
