Are you prepared to buy new driveshafts? Ad 33s are way to small get a 2"-2.5" lift 33s only look good under that size lift. Read up a lot more on this forum before pulling the trigger your mind will change trust me. Don't bite off more than you know what is going to happen or will ever need.

Yeah the combo should work well with your gears lots of guys on here are happy with similar set ups. Myself I'm glad I ordered the 3.73 gears.

Well I call it a lift some dont. It's a leveling kit with 2" spacers you put on top of the stock front springs and 1" spacer for the rear springs. It lifts and levels out the body rake so it sets more level.

Do the spacers/ leveling kit do any harm to the jeep if you go offroad or even daily driving? Ive heard mixed reviews on them....but i really like the way they look and its waay cheaper in the middle time before i get a lift...

No not really. If you are running heavy bumpers or carrying a lot of load, the factory spring could sag and cause rubbing. Especially with bigger tires.

Well I do plan on getting a bumper but I'm goin with the same tire size as you have and. I could always replace the springs too. I'm jut makin sure it won't mess anything up. I think I'm going to do it!

Go for it. You can always swap springs later. Just make sure you increase the bumpstop length with 35's

Keep it low 2" lift some 35's and some trimmed fenders will give you a really good look on a 2 door. You will need some 1.5" wheel spacers for the factory wheels.
