Lifting New 2013 Sport

First time Jeep owner here (2013 Sport) . Looking to lift 2"-4", add 17in Rockstar wheels with either 31",33", or 35 tire depending on configuration. Trying to figure out smartest most advisable set up. Jeep is used to commute daily and only occasionally go off-roading. Want my ride to look nice (More a street Jeep), but still be capable off road. Other considerations are not having to change up the gears, not worry about killing extra large tires, etc... YouTube, Google and fellow Jeep owners have been helpful but I need the Pro's advice...

If you don't want to regear and have safe and minimum fuel efficiency loss then i would recommend 15" wheels and 33" tires. Also i would suggest a teraflex leveling kit with it. I have a 4 door but i went with 35" and im happy, i haven't done regearing either, and i don't really need it., don't think i would settle on 4 door jeep anything below 35".

There is not enough info in your garage to really lock it down. If you dont want to regear you can usually buy a set of 5 Rubicon takeoffs, pretty cheap. I just sold mine for a 1000. That will get you a 32 and 17 wheels. Hard to match that price for new wheels and tires. I spent 2K on my new ones.

You can do 2.5" with 35's to keep cost down. One you go over that, you will need a front driveshaft. If you use an AEV Procal ($150) to program your tire size, you won't need to regear even for 35's assuming you got 3.73 gears. If you got the 3.21, probably want to stick to 33's unless you're willing to pay for gears.

33" would be fine with 1.5 - 2.5". Mileage would be better with 33's. You can even do 33's without a lift if you're only doing light wheeling and don't disconnect the sway bar.
