New TJ owner

All, I have sold my CJ and bought a TJ. I had my CJ for 13years and it was tough to see it go. I have always wanted a TJ because of the suspension. The jeep I bought was owned by a older gentleman that lived near me. I had looked at the jeep before and it was set up pretty nice. Well he passed away and I bought it from his nephew who is the executor. I had noticed before that it had Currie stickers on the ends of the axles so when I looked it over I found it had a Currie high pinion 9 inch in it with disc brakes. ARB up front with alloy shafts and Warn hub conversion. It also had a Currie 4 inch lift with JKS disconnects plus he had ACOS adjustable lift to compensate for the Warn 9.5TI. Once I started rolling around underneath it I could not believe my luck on this Jeep. He did not know what he had. It also only has 49000 miles. He was only running 32's so I need to put tires on it. So my question is 33's or 35's pro's and con's for each. I am not a rock crawler just mountains and hunting is what I will use it for.

Unless the tires are shot, I wouldn't spend money to go up only 1 inch in tire diameter. So ... 35's and
