My suggestions would be to read the lift threads and determine if you want a budget boost or coil lift depending on the tires you want and how you will use it. I am new to this and went with a 2.5" Teraflex Coli lift and Bilstien 5100 shocks. It still drives great on the road and it is a daily driver. Simple spacer lifts can be done very inexpensively.

The lift you need is going to be based off what you plan on doing with your jeep. Like me I did a 4" lift cause I know I will be moving back to FL and going in some deep water/mud if your just in an area where it is trails and lil mud I would not go that high.

I did a 2.5" Rough Country budget boost (spacer) lift and added 35s. Drives about the same as stock. The Rubicon already has good springs and shock so I paid $150 and got some lift.
