I am in the same situation. I wanna do the same before I upgrade my wheels to 33x12.50x15. My biggest concern is, do I need to lifted before I ad the wheels or would they fit on stock suspension?

You've got all winter. Read, research, then read and research some more. Learn about all the issues that a lift can cause. Don't half-a$$ the job, you'll pay for it later (when you don't have the money!) Get everything you need (want) before doing the lift. Better to wait and save your pennies for a good lift, and avoid replacing stuff down the road.

Here's a start: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/tj-l...ews-25145.html

once to add the lift
you say now I can add bigger tires
now you may need lower gears
and then you need to replace the rear end
with something stronger and then you might as well
add a locker and it goes on from there.
