Lift help!! Driveshaft? Steering component? Height?

Hey everyone, I have a 2012 jeep wrangler 2 door and I'm finally deciding I want to lift it up a bit. I currently am running 33's but after the lift want to run 35's. I want like a 3.5-4" lift but I'm worried about other issues that don't come in the kit! I really need help! What size is a good looking size?(pictures please) and also what kind of brands should I look at with prices if you've got.

If anyone has pictures of a lift compared to a before picture of their jeep without the lift that would be great!

Thanks for all the help!

I installed 4" Rough Country lift...$499.00 on my 2 door 2013 Wrangler Sport. Had local 4 wheel shop to do the installation. Added 35's and I love it....! No other modification were needed...

Rides "hard" on the washboards, but other than that smooth cruising...Feel some power loss in 6th gear and 5th when going uphill but nothing that concerns me.

I am happy...

2.5" is enough for 35's. w/ flat fenders even better, 3-4" if not complete will ride harsh and have issues.

Here's mine stock and with 3.5" of lift. See mod list in sig for everything done to make it work.
