G54 You could put on a 1.25" body lift and a 1" motor mount lift and run 33x12.50s with the budget boost you have already. As was said though, you need a wheel with backspacing around 3.75" to 4" or run a 10.5 wide tire. If you disconnect your sway bars off road with the 2" + body lift you may want to trim your fender flares or get a flat flare for tire clearance. Here is a link to the BL/MML from Rokmen. Generally a 1" BL is all you should do on a Wrangler.

The spacer lift you have is considered the budget boost.. I can get you a true 4" spring lift for $529 or a 3" for $459

mdogg78 i would go with a spacer lift like rather than a body lift...im just not a big fan of body lift's over 1''
Rubicon express budget boost is a good idea

What is the best way to go about adding the additional 2" inches? I am not looking to mess up the geometry of the vehicle with a suspension lift. Is there a recommended 2" body lift I can put on as well that will do the job?

4point You will need wheels with proper back spacing to accommodate an 11.50 width tire. The factory wheels wont work for the 11.50 but will be OK with the 10.50.

How large of a tire with 2" lift?

I am about to purchase my first Jeep, so I am ignorant about a lot of the details of this beautiful vehicle. It is a 2005 Wrangler X. It currently has a 2" spring spacer lift on it with very small tires (235's). I was hoping to upgrade to 33" tires. Is that feasible or will I need additional lift? What size can be accomadated with the 2" lift?
