I went with the Rough Country 4in lift with the N2 series shocks. I've heard both pros and cons and for the budget it was up my alley. The tires are GY Duratracs 33x12.5 with Pro Comp rock crawlers Series 97, 15x8 with 5 on 4.5 Bolt Pattern with 4.5 bs. So far pretty happy with the look.

33s look great on the older Jeeps. I am sure my 33s will look ok after my lift. Just not as good as 35s!!!

Yeah, I'm still getting use to the feel of it. Good news is no DW!! I was nervous getting on the highway this morning going to work. It seemed to get a little rough at around 50 but at 55 it calmed down. I mean the body vibration not the steering. I still have to put on the steering stabilizer too, but I am pretty happy so far.

The lift said it didn't need a SYE. I thought it might be the rear drive shaft also. I was pricing out my options for that. That'll be my next purchase.

You may not need a SYE but at minimum will have to adjust rear drive shaft angle. I can tell you by looking at it.
