Wheels, Tires and Lift Questions

Hey all.. I know this info is out there but it is fairly scattered and I am about to pull the trigger ordering stuff with all the Memorial Day sales going so figured I would just cut to the chase and ask.

I have a 2013 JKU ordered and expect to get it sometime next month. I am already starting to order parts though. I want to get a lift, wheels and tires and here is what I am thinking.

Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 33X12.50R15C2 Tires
Black Rock Viper 15X8 5-127 -19TUB Wheels
2" Rancho RS66109BR9 Lift

This will be my DD and for the most part it will rarely see trails. Is there anything else I will need suspension wise for this setup? Should I have any issues with rubbing or clearance?

I plan to order the tires and wheels from Discount Tires Direct. I know I will have to get the tire sensors too. I have read a number of people saying they got a $50 discount for being a forum member, do you just call and order over the phone and tell them that to get the discount?

If there is anything else I might should know that I have not asked please feel free to chime in. I have owned jeeps for years, but sadly this is my first attempt to really mod one. I would rather have all the parts on hand so I can tear it down one weekend and do it all myself. TIA!

You should be good with any lift on 33's. 2" should look nice and still keep you safe from any driveshaft issues. I'd say you're good to go

In addition to the $50 discount for being a forum member, don't forget about the $50 discount when you order a set of 5 wheels or 5 tires.

You can PM them on here and get the discount or tell them your forum name over the phone.
