First off before anyone says it: I did search already but with so many options and opinions I am not 100% sure options I picked will really work for me.
Here's my goal:
33in tires (TSL SXIIs... Specifically model SX2-55 which is 33x9.5 r17)
Stock 17in aluminum wheels
Coyote air type bead locks
Minimum lift possible (Jeep already has a pretty high COG and I don't need it flipping over)
Maintain use of stock rear tire carrier
No change to turning radius and little to no impact to articulation
Would like to change fenders both for increased durability (already damaged one of the stock plastic ones) and better clearance
So far I know I will need:
5 Interco SX2-55 tires
Electronic speedo calibrating doohicky like this one: AEV ProCal Module - JK Speedometer Recalibration
Set of 4 beadlocks like these https://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/C...n=STNCEB1779-4
(not bothering with spare for the moment).
Questions I still have:
Do I need to beef up rear tire carrier somehow to support additional weight?
How do I relocate the rear brake light that over the tire to clear the new larger size tire?
Will the larger tire clear a typical aftermarket rear bumper (definitely looks like it will NOT clear stock bumper but I will be changing that out anyway)?
If I run 1.5 or 2in coil spacers do I have to do any modifications to the driveline (ie SYE or something)?
Will such a small lift with 33s cause rubbing with stock or aftermarket fenders (curious about both in case I decide to do tires before fenders... Metal tube fenders look really nice but also pretty costly)?
What are my options for wheel spacers and is my steering beefy enough to handle increased scrub radius in addition to larger tires (I have 2in adapter spacers on another vehicle to run a nice set of wheels I got for free and it did wonders for stability off road... Would sort of like something similar for Jeep)?
Anyone see any issues with what I THINK I need so far?
EDIT: Forgot to include some info.
Jeep is a 2012 2dr Rubicon
Motor is 3.6
Transmission is manual 6 speed
Current tires and wheels (sorry about the mud... Just went wheeling and when I went to my usual self service car wash yesterday I found they had torn it down for some reason):
Here is the Jeep as it sits now (again sorry about the mud):
