Need advice!

Hey, so I'm looking to purchase my first jeep. I have my eye on a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I want to was thinking about putting on a lift kit (3" or so) and also new tires (30" or so). What is your guys opinions on the best lift kits and tires? I most likely won't be doing that much off roading it is mostly for show.

Drive it just the way it is for a while, and look at other Jeeps, and soon it will become clear and you will never again have any money.

30s maybe a 2 drop from what on there now. With the lift, you are talking increasing the gap between tire and fender by 4". Adding stiffer springs or leveling kit would more than due if it is just for looks. I would recommend driving as is until the jeep really tells you what it wants your money spent on.
