What is the best lift?

I have a 2004 LJ and am getting ready to lift it. I only want a 4" lift and 33" tires. I also don't want to spend a ton of money. It seems like the Old Man Emu Trailblazer kit or the Zone Offroad kit may be the best values. Does anyone know which is best? The jeep is my daily driver and only sees the trails about once every month or so. Any suggestions would help.

the trailblazer kit does not appear to come with new control arms, and with that height, you should at least get longer lowers. just something to think about.
the zone kit comes with new lowers, and is like a $100 cheaper the the trailblazer kit. which after you think about how much it would cost to get the proper sized control arms, you could save a lot with the zone kit.

OME 2.5" suspension, 1.25" body lift and you're all set. Shouldn't have any vibes and you can still run 33's with proper backspacing and bumpstops.

This works out very well for me although I also added a 3/4 inch spring spacer up front along with the 1 inch MML.
