Would a Rough Country 2.5 suspension lift be able to fit 33s?
I would say yes "to fit" if you extend bumpstops and are willing to trim up your stock plastic flares up about 1". At least it will be fine for on road and light offroad.

I'm running 35s on my jku with a RC 2.5 spring lift

Never mind, I just noticed this was the tj forum.

No, at least not without additional significant modifications like hacking up the fenders etc. The absolute minimum I recommend which works for street use is 3", but 4" is the recommended height for offroading with 33" tires.

Add a JKS 1.25 body lift and you'll be fine
with proper bumpstop extensions.

33's are fit in two common ways on TJ's:

1. ~4" suspension lift, with ~2" bumpstop extensions in front and ~2.5" in the rear. Requires a SYE/CV shaft.
2. ~2.5" suspension lift, with a 1.25" body lift, with ~1-1.25" bumpstop extensions in front and ~1.25-1.5" in the rear. The 1.25" BL usually accompanies a 1" Motor Mount Lift to offset some of the driveline angles.

Either way you go, figure on some or many of the following components: longer front brake lines, extended sway bar links front and rear, gears, brake and steering upgrades to accommodate larger tires, SYE, CV shaft, bumpstop extensions, new shocks, adjustable track bars, and a rear track bar bracket.
