whats the minimum lift to run 33x12.5's?

i have a 95 yj with stock suspension but want to widen my stance and put a little lift on i was thinjking about wheel spacers offset rims and like a 2" shackle lift i want it as wide as possible without cutting up fenders too bad or having to drop pitman arm and transfer case but i heard something about tj flares let you cut up your fenders to run bigger tires ?

I have 1.25" shackles and add-a-leafs (about 2") height-wise is not an issue...I don't have wheel spacers yet so it rubs at full lock, but very drive-able. (running 33x12.50 tsl thornbirds)

MIGHT be able to get by with like a 2.5" RC suspension lift... But I would go with a 4" just to be safe.

With the 2.5" lift, the max RECOMMENDED tire size is 32"

well seeing as the rc 4 inch lift is just as expensive as the 2.5 theirs no reason not to go with it. and i want a 1.50 body lift with me 4 inch becouse my 33's clear just fine but not a lot of flex room. personal preference though i suppose
