Getting a wrangler real soon and wanting to get a 2.5" lift with 33" tires. Was wondering what would give me the smoothest possible ride for daily driving and best performance for off-roading. I am a total newb so what parts do I need for a complete lift? Also what tires would you recommend? Also, I'd rather spend some more money to get a quality lift than cheap out... But best bang for the buck is always preferred.

There are tons of posts on this site about lifts, comparisons, installs, etc. Just do some searching and you will find all you need.

I put a 3" Zone nitrogen lift kit rides better the stockCost 500 and worth every penny
If you don't got a rubican they also list all the parts you need optional that is like quick disconnects etc.
but if I were you go with 35" tire it's better

First, you'll probably want to do some research on the forum - these are pretty common questions.

Most 2.5" lifts only allow 31" tires. The 4"+ lifts are needed for 33s. Quadratec has a good lift selection chart:

Lift Kit Advisor for Jeep Vehicles - Select your vehicle - Quadratec

Body lift and flares, etc might allow 33s with a 2.5" lift - that's beyond my experience. Good luck!
