Technically 33's *CAN* fit on a stock TJ - I've seen a few with them. But it'll rub almost certainly on hard turns and speed bumps. 31's are, from what I was told the largest you can put on a stock TJ with minimal issues. It's what I have and the only rub I have is extreme turns (i.e. to the stops). Personally, I think 31's look fine but I'm also biased as it's what I have.

Thats some good mileage, just start reading on these forums, it all depends on your budget and off road desires??? on which lift to get. Don't put anything bigger than 30" tires on a stock vehicle, for 33'' you need at least 3" of lift, there are different combinations as in a 2'' suspension and one inch body lift, if you do a lot or more extreme off roading then you need better than a budget boost, you need to get a proper lift kit. Read, read, read!
