2.5 RC Lift on 33 Duratracs Pictures please!!

Hi everyone! I'm very new so please bare with me! I have a 2003 6 Cylinder Automatic. I bought the 2.5" Rough Country lift and can't decide which size of tires to get. Every forum says something different and I keep changing my mind..
I mainly use my jeep as a daily driver and really don't want to lose any power. If I purchase the 33" duratracs, will I lose power? What do 31" duratracs look like on a 2.5" lift?
I'm also up in the air about 32" BFG AT but aren't the 33" duratracs measured at 32"?

I would just like some insight on this and pictures please!!
Thanks guys!

I have the 4" RC lift and 3" body and I have 33s. I hankook dynapro at. They are great tires, I use my jeep as a daily driver and to go mudding/off roading and the tires perform well. I want to get bigger tires since as you can see in the picture I have plenty of wheel well space left. You will be fine with 33s with 2.5" but I wouldn't go any bigger then that. Also I have stock gears and even with my 33s I still get plenty of power and pretty good mpg. Being its a stick helps a lot.

I definitely lost power with mine, so if you don't want to I'd just stick to 31". Here is mine with the RC 2.5" coils and a 1.25" body lift on top with 33" duratracs.

I think the 2.5" lift on 31" tires looks just fine. I'm planning on going up to 32"s though at some point. You really don't lose any power if you stick to 31"s and as a daily driver the limit is 33"s.

Sorry I didn't see the year in the first post. Nice looking jeeps though. If I were u I'd put on some 33/12.5 or 10.5/15 s. the jk calipers r so big even though some people run 15 rims there is almost no clearance.
