Yes, that'll work. You need to make sure you have wheels with proper backspacing to prevent the tires from rubbing. How much offroading do you do? Do you typically disconnect the swaybar?

1.25" is generally accepted as being the tolerable maximum.

I'd go with 32" tires, you'ld have a better gear ratio. If you go 33" you're gonna rub, and you'll really notice a loss of power unless you re-gear to 4.10 gears, then your milage really drops. 32" tires on a 2" lifted TJ gives you more capability than you think.

I'm going to have to say your wrong on this the difference between 32 and 33 s will not make a big notice in power. If he did a bl with the lift he already has and has correct bumpstops and the right back spacing it will not rub at all. When you regear it helps with the gas mileage if its the correct gears for the tires

I run a 1.25'BL and a 2" BB with 33x12.50s and they just barely rub the front sway bars during full articulation. But I must add that my winch pulls the front down a bit so I will eventually replace the front spacers with 3"'springs to try and level things up.
