Upgrading to 33's

I have a stock 2012 Sport with 17" wheels (running 3.21 I'm assuming). I'm looking to upgrade to possibly 305/70R17 BFG KM2s (33.9" X12.2") or the duractracts 285/70/17 (32.8x 11.5), not set in stone tho.

My question is, can i fit either one of these with a 2"/1" leveling kit and 1.5" wheel spacers? I already blacked out the stock rims and i really like the look, so i'd like to keep them. Would I be able to run these without rubbing and having to cut fenders? I don't really beat it on the trail and do have a 30 mile commute everyday. Most the Jeep will probably see for now are Rausch greens (maybe some blues never been there.

Any input would be great, thanks guys!

Yep, you'll be fine. You don't even really need a lift for 33's. A leveling kit would suffice though.

You think I would get away with the bigger 34" size with leveling kit and wheel spacers?

Probably, you'll just have to bump stop accordingly.
