Picking a lift size, advice welcome

So I recently purchased a 2004 wrangler x which is my first jeep, coming from driving full size lifted pickups im looking and getting the TJ lifted and I can't decide if I should go for a 4", 6" long arm or the 8" lift from fabtech. This would be my rainy day driver since I ride my bike as often as the weather permits so what are some recommendations? Thanks for all the help guys.

I absolutely love my 4" TrailMaster suspension lift kit w/33" BFG KM2 mud-terrains on my 2006 wrangler x sport. Up here in N. WI we have all 4 seasons and I have fared well on surfaces across the board. I'm sure that whatever you settle on will be just fine as long as you haven't rushed your decision. Good Luck!

Yea, I'm trying not to rush into it. I don't want to get one and wish I had a different one. My last truck was on 37" km2 I loved the size but I also had a hemi pushing them. Not sure about the jeep being on those but i love the way the 8" looks

I had a rough country 4" lift on my 97 TJ, it was nice but a bit bouncy compared to my 2” procomp. I was running 33” with 4.10 gears with ARB air lockers. I may have needed long arm system.
