Man the first most important question ... Manual or automatic?

Wait, 4" lift for 33s? Check out vze2372e's profile pics for a 4" lift over 35s. Admittedly, he's got flat flares, but are you really sure you want 4" over 33s??

MTH has an excellent point ... Never thought of that. 35's on a 4" lift with flatties gives it that look - if it were 33's it would be look too small. You may want to consider a 2.5 lift especially if you have a 2dr. Beyond that it's a driveshaft angle issue means replacement with SYE Driveshafts at around 500 each - on an unlimited it is not an issue
