same question. can't find a thread

Hi guys I'm new to this forum and I'm having a little difficulty deciding on a lift and was hoping to have some input from you and use your expertise to help me select a product.I can't seem to find a thread that answers my question only come close to what I'm looking for. I'm currently with the same choice many of us new to jk jeeps have on what size lift to get and which package to get. I currently have 33x12.5r17 with the teraflex performance leveling kit(I'll attach a pic) and I thought I would like it but I don't. I loved how my tj with 33s and a 4 inch lift looked because it looked balanced but my jk looks like it's squatting or something is off. I have the choice of the 2.5 teraflex lift with shocks and coils (http://www.northridge4x4.com/terafle...-kit-w-shocks? )or a 3 inch with shocks coils and flexarms (http://www.northridge4x4.com/terafle...exarms-shocks?) Which would be better for me cuz I truly have no clue? I have a 2 door jk sport manual tranny with 3.73 gears. I use it as my dd and I travel about 75 mi a day roundtrip for work so I kinda want to stay with 33s. another thing I want to add is have to have room to flex even under load because I kept rubbing back fender when I was at the lease going over levees and hills with corn and big hunters working Mr down... but I don't want it to look anemic if you know what I mean. I'm keeping stock bumpers because I want to keep weight at a minimal since I'm dealing with soft soft sand almost quicksand like so I won't have that making reducing the lift. Again what are your opinions and what route should I take?
I'm so sorry if this is a subject that has been beat to death but I guess I need my turn to beat on the horse haha.
Thanks again.

Put flat fenders on it as it will give you the look of about 4" of lift and will not affect the suspension or steering geometry. I know there are photo threads of 33's with flats on several of the forums. This one is completely stock suspension with 33"x12.5 on 16" wheels

Some build info here:
