What size leveling kit would anybody recommend to fit 33's on a 2012 4-door and make it look a little beefy? I don't want to make the tires just barely fit. I'm pretty sure I could do that stock with flat fenders. My first jeep was a 03 with a 4" suspension lift and 33" tires, but I hated the ride. I want to keep the stock suspension to keep a comfortable ride. I only do mild off-roading so I don't really need a suspension upgrade. I just miss the feel of being up high on the road.

I'm looking at a Pro Comp 3" leveling kit.
Is this overkill for 33's and look ugly or will it look just fine?

Totally recommend the STT's. I am running the STT's on a 17x8 with 4.6" BS rims. I am on my second set of STT's Tek3 tires on my JKU (35's now) and they are a great tire in mud, snow, rain, rocks, but crappy on ice like any other M/T on the market. They are fairly quiet on pavement, good wearing tire and zero chunking of the lugs. The STT's have a strong side wall and never had any sidewall punctures or that matter a flat tire. The 33's lasted me close to 100,000km (62K miles) on a 5 tire rotation. You do have to rotate a little more often to avoid cupping or uneven wear compared to an AT tire.

I even ran a set of 35's STT's on my Diesel Truck and they are a great performing tire. Only drawback for the STT is it seems at least 1 of the 5 tires needs a pile of weight to balance.

Side note: I have run Toyo M/Ts on my Diesel truck and I have to say the STT's are just as good of a tire as the Toyo's in performance and wear as well the STT's are much lighter and a little cheaper priced tire. I will be getting another set of STT's for my JKU once my 35's wear out.

Give you an idea on 3" lift and 33x12.5R17's with stock fenders. Not bad IMHO.

We rocked Moab March 2014.

silver jeep had teraflex performance coil kit with additional 3/4" spacer in front and 1/2" in rear and white had 2" AEV spacer kit neither had any issues. silver had 285/70-75 on stock rims with spidertrax 1.5" spacers and white had 285/75-17 on stock rims with spidertrax spacers.

I definitely like the look of the 3" over the 2" lift. That one inch goes a long way in the overall look.

REVY. What kit did you get for that jeep? The Pro Comp lift I'm looking at is $430.

Is there a lift of same quality that isn't so expensive?

Finally!! I have found someone with my exact tires and idea for 2.5 lift. I just have a couple questions: are you a daily driver? If so, what's your mpg on highway and street? I want to know this because after getting these tires it's dropped down to 12-13 and I can't deal with it dropping 3-4 more miles since I am a daily driver. I do wheeling about once a month. How's handling? And if you know, what gears do you have?

I have 2013 JKU sport. I am seriously considering Rancho 2" lift kit with 9000 shocks for 33" tires. There is a spring promotion too! Many praise rancho 9000 shocks. Any comment for me?

My 3" lift pictured above - I went coil spring as I did add bumpers/winch. The kit I went with was OME HD coil spring lift with LT shocks. Pieced together (coils, track bars, swaybar links, quick disco's, LT shocks, Adj Lower front control arms, longer brake lines, coil retainer clips) came in around $1250 with taxes and shipping - 4.5 years ago.

With the OME HD Coils springs with just stock bumpers gave me 3.75" of lift. After adding bumpers/winch it dropped to just a touch over 3" of lift. Besides removing my stock coils and RE spacers, I did have to add JKS F/R track bars to center the axles, Adj. Rear sway bar links and I even added TeraFlex lower front adj Control arms to get my Caster back on the front axle and I used my 2" bump stops from my RE kit and swapped out RE shocks for my OME LT shocks.

If you are considering any weight like bumpers/winch down the road I highly recommend you go with a good quality coil spring lift over a Budget boost/leveling kit. It will save you money down the road. Besides Procomp leveling kits, you could look at Zone or TeraFlex as some possible leveling/lift kits that may include shocks and track bars and be in your budget.

I do plan on replacing the stock bumpers eventually and never considered the weight that would add. My only concern with a coil lift is the stiffness in the ride. My old 2 door had a 4" coil lift and every crack in the road felt like driving over a speed bump.

If I still decide on going with the spacers what should I be concerned about with the future added weight? Are you saying the stock shocks won't be able to support the weight and I'll eventually need to get bigger springs anyway?

new bumpers/winch the stock springs will sag at least 1-2" depending on what load rating your JK came from factory. The sag will make for a harsher ride over bumps!

The ride on my OME HD coil spring lift with just stock bumpers was pretty harsh. Once I added the weight (bumpers/winch) the ride was just as good as stock.

Thanks Revy. That helps a lot. One more question though. If I wanted to get the spacer lift and rode it until I can afford the bumpers, sidesteps, and eventually the winch, would I be able to just add stiffer springs in the future or would that not work?

Yes you bet you can! That is what I did with my OME HD lift, I kept pieces from my RE 2" BB kit and sold what I could that I did not require for the coilspring lift.

The pieces I saved from my RE kit were just the 2" bumpstops, but I sold the 2" coil spacers and mono tube shocks to put the $$$ towards the OME HD lift. I just pieced my OME HD lift kit by purchasing the HD coil springs, F/R JKS track bars, Lower Front Adj Control Arms and Swaybar links and longer shocks & brake lines and did the lift myself.

I drive it about 20-30 miles a day. I didn't really notice any drop mileage after I put the lift on but when I put the tires on I dropped to about the same that you have. On a good day I can get it up to about 14.5 mpg but I'm really moving slow if I do that. The last trip from houston to Alto texas I was getting about 13 or so highway. Handling is fine. Not much different than stock. I did put a new front track bar and front lower control arms on. The control arms adjusted my castor angle and now it steers like stock. I've got a 2012 manual with 3.73's.

Awesome thank you so much! I've been looking for this answer for awhile. It's great to know the drop mileage was just in the adding the tires. I'm going to put this on my rig

A true test of a tire is to let a farmer run them were I live and the stt's stand up the test. I have a farmer who runs them on all his tricks and they abuse tires like nobody else could. They run the 10 ply's but they last longer than any other tire I sell.

You should be good to go with that. I've read somewhere that the rear swaybar link rubs the wheel if you're running stock wheels and no spacers. Also I got right at 2.5 inches in the front and 2 in the rear with rugged ridge front and rear bumpers.

It's funny because the bumper you have is the one I just put on order yesterday. But I might put the Teraflex leveling kit later on so I won't have to fix the leveling with a rear bumper

I'm pretty sure the lift is meant to yield around 2.5 front and 2 in the rear. That does level it out so you don't have to worry about leveling later on.
