New front bumper, lift, wheels and tire upgrades

I have a 2013 JKU Rubicon. Just got it a few weeks ago so everything is still stock. Was thinking of 2.5 lift, 17" Savegre's in black with 33" mud/terrains and a front bumper upgrade with trail lights. Any suggestions? If anyone has pics to share on what you've done it would be appreciated.

Thanks-Joe

Check the 2 or 4 door pic threads and see what you like. Tons of options.

What kind of offroading will you be doing? How often? What's your budget?

I'm looking at doing it in stages. Figured it made sense to run these tires til they need to be repaced. I only have 1800 miles on them to date. Figured i'd do the front bumper first. Then start putting money aside and get new wheels, tires and do the lift when it's time to replace my tires.

I love the look of 35" tires but I put about 400 miles a week on my JEEP. I thought going with33's was a good compromise.

Teraflex with shock extensions.
Inexpensive, everything you need and most important. The coils are 4 door/2 door.
33's or 35's will work out with this lift.

What's the difference between the Teraflex and the Rock Krawler 2.5" you're running?

I have a mix of parts.

RK coils jack a 2 door up pretty high with no weight.
Track bars/CA's/highsteer all needed to improve drivability.

Just ordered Rugged Ridge Winch mount modular XHD front bumper, textured black and a Hoop over Rider black textured w/ streamed heavy duty bumper!
They were $50 cheaper than quadratec.com. Free shipping too! Any thoughts on trail lights to go with this set up?
