New Tires and Lift Kit

I am planning on lifting my 2006 LJ Rubicon 3.5 inches and going from 31 inch tires to 33 inch tires. My dilemma is will my planned 3.5 lift be enough. I am not sure how much of a stock lift Rubicons have from the start and would hate to invest the time and money and not see much of a change in my jeep's profile. Should I go higher? I don't want my Jeep to be "jacked up" but just to look beefy, more aggressive. I am relatively new to the jeep world and would appreciate the input of some seasoned veterans.

3.5" is perfect for 33's on a TJ/LJ. LJ's need at least 33's to look right IMO, with the longer wheel base.

I know the 33's will fit witht he 3.5 lift. Just wish I knew if it was the look I am going for or not before I invest the money. Anyone who has a picture of an LJ with 3.5 lift and 33s I would really appreciate seeing it.
