Rubicon unlimited spacer lift advice please.

Hello guys. I am new to the forum as of tonight and am looking for some good advice please. I just bought a used 08 rubicon unlimited with 30k miles. it has new tires on it (stock rubi tires BFG mud Terrain 255 75 17) so i was hoping to not have to change them but get a small lift (2 to 2.5). What do you guys recommend? This is my everyday driver but I would also like to start some offroading. Also will the stock tires look ok. I am trying to stay small enough that it wont look bad with a big gap, but at the same time notice a difference in height. Lets hear some opinions and hopefully some pics.

Thanks!
Rich

33's will fit stock
AEV and Tera make great BB's

Best advice is to look at the Lift sticky in this forum. Lots of pics and pro's and con's of diff lifts

Please listen.

Go off roading FIRST, then decide what mods you need, if any. You must make the mods fit the offroading you do. Chances are, your offroading will be fine with the stock equipment you have. Of course some common sense falls into play, ie, do not slam your Jeep into a four foot deep mudhole with stock tires.

Welcome to the forum!
I have a two inch spacer in my Rubicon, front only. Thought I would try that 30K miles ago and have stayed with it. It leveled out my unlimited, and nothing had to be changed.
I run 33's with no problem. Off-road almost daily and still works as a DD.
Good luck! And enjoy!

I really like it so far.
Just went off roading today again. Thanks for the advice guys. The 2 inch looks great! I also like those rims.
