2.5 or 3 inch lift for JK

So I am looking to put in a small lift in my 2012 JK. Any suggestions? I want to be able to run a 33 inch tire but road manners is very important to me since 99% of my time is on road. Terra flex looks like it has some good options. I also herd the OME lift is good but really stiff and the ride will suffer for it. Any
opinions?

If road manners are important you want to stay as stock as possible.

33's will fit with 0 lift. Or maybe a leveling kit or simple BB would work also

I commute close to 70 miles per day on the tollway. I love my AEV 2.5" lift and my Duratracs. The Bilsteins are a little stiffer but I think the ride is very close to stock. I really love the fact that my JK doesn't nose dive if I have to brake hard like it did when it was stock. The wifey says she doesn't notice any difference but she only gets to drive it once every 2 weeks or so. I have to keep telling her it's MY JEEP.
