Right tire size???

Here it goes. I just bought a 2008 JK Sahara unlimited and am taking the plunge quick. I'm looking to back down from the stock wheels and put a set of custom 17's on there with a 33x12.5x17 Cooper STT........here's my question......

to regear or not to regear?

new tire carrier perhaps ? due to weight on the tailgate?

anybody else running this setup and do you live with it normal driving?

I'm new to this world from a full size pickup and im just realizing that I should've brought my wallet with me. I've looked into the superchip thing and it seems good to me at any level. I'll probably do that anyway regardless of the new wheels and tires. I just don't want to tear up a "brand new" vehicle. It is to me at least.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

08 JK Sahara bone stock and ready to rock

You shouldn't have to re-gear with 33's and your stock tire carrier will be fine for your new set up. (unless you want to upgrade! ).
