Question Want to Upgrade. NEED ADVICE PLEASE

Hello

I have a 1997 Jeep wrangler sport 6cly 4.0. I just hit 100,000 miles... I need to change the tires (which are currently bf all terrain 31's). I wanted to go up to 35's and heard that a 4 inch lift is sufficient. Im not a diehard offroader but I go camping and fishing. Therefore I just mainly want it for the aesthetics and not for rock climbing etc...( it will feel like a new car, a change...) Firstly, Ive saved about $3000. My first question is would that be enough to get a lift, tires and add some horsepower.. Is there a package that someone can recommend that maybe changes several things to boost my horsepower/torque etc... And lastly where should I begin... Engine first? or suspension/tires?

Thank you
Chad

You'll need to regear for the bigger tires, need specs on your engine to know what gears you need, if you want a decent lift for cheap, I've heard good things from the zone combo, 3" suspension and 1.25" body lift, you might or might not need an sye and cv to fix any vibrations, and then decide on the tires.

Also if you have the d35 rear it might not hold up to the 35s and might want to upgrade that too.
