New Jeep Owner, seeking advice

I just bought my first Jeep last week (been waiting a long time for this).

It's exactly what I've been looking for, all stock 2003 Rubicon, 56k miles. I commute about 1-3 miles to work each day, maybe 5 if I'm giving the kids a ride to school. I plan on owning it for a very long time, and the main road use will be getting to and from the trails/mud.

Here's what I've selected so far...

Skidz (Need the step, I have little ones).

Black KMC XD122 Enduro Wheels, 16x9. I'd like a little less backspacing but I really like these wheels.

MTR Tires, or BFG AT's. 31-33". I want to avoid the bubble look, so 10-10.5 is as wide as I'd like to go. I'm green though, so maybe 11 wouldn't be bad?

SO far I like the 3.5" Lift Kit from Rubicon Express RE7213M.

Am I on the right track here? If not, could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks a lot!

You need 33's for sure. If I were you I'd at least go with 11in wide. A little worse on gas but great stability.
