Suspension lift?!?!

I currently have a 1999 jeep wrangler tj I am looking to get 33 inch tires but now I'm not sure on what to do on a lift I don't want to do a body lift I am just in high school and will be paying for ALL of this so what is the most price reasonable lift and what hight? I do light trails and travel no more than 20 miles a day I have herd mixes reviews on RC but I like that lift for the $$. I also am a little confused on exactly what needs to be done with the t case drop or drive shaft? I am looking at doing a 3 to 4 inch lift and like I said before I am on about 1,200 budget so any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!! (Sorry new to the fourm)😜

'99 with 2" bb and trimmed fenders. Clears 33s easily.

Just get a bb then 1" body lift to get at least 3. But it'll blvd tight with 33s. My fenders are trimmed so its not. But with 1200 you can do it but you'd spend all of it. And look at the zone 4.25" lift.

$100 budget boost, $100 one inch body lift and you're good to go.

2" coil spacers and 1" body lift is about the cheapest you're gonna get. A set of 33s is gonna eat up the majority of your budget.

Is there more to installing the lift? I have seen reviews saying that you get drive Lin vibrations what is the best solution for something like that? Thanks!
