Talking new (old) jeep - Body or suspension lift??

Hi! I just bought my first jeep yesterday and couldn't be more excited about all the stuff I want to do to it. I need advice on everything! I hope I'm in the right place =)

The first thing I want to do is lift the jeep. I wont go off roading so would a body lift be the best choice? I want bigger tires too. Right now everything is stock. Kind of lost.

With a lil bit of knowledge i gathered ( im new too the lift kit is your best bet. Body lift is fine if you go an inch or so, but suspension lift gives you room for 33, and your ride will be looking hot and more manageable . 3-4" is the shit! Im putting that on my freshly purchased TJ let me know how you did.
