2001 lift ?

Well I'm in my way to getting the tj ready. Ordered my new soft top today and getting a new windshield installed tomorrow. Now my next purchase is a lift kit I am sure this thread has been run into the ground but I'd like some fresh input on this, I have had plenty of lifted pickups this is my 1st jeep. So. Here's all I want to do is to put a set of 33x12.50x15 mounted on 15x10 wheels not sure what type of wheel to look into yet.. I am looking for a 4" kit basic I guess, I don't rock crawl I am more into playing in a Lil mud and doing a lot of trail riding, called jeeperz Creeperz today and they have a 4" rough country lift with shocks I am interested in. Not really wanting to spend a 1000 bucks on a lift for what i am doing with it. I looked at the YouTube video for the kit looks like it mounts up easily and looks pretty well built. What's some input on lifts please and once again thanks in advance.

buy once cry once. There is a lot of work to do to properly run 33's. I am north of 6k on my TJ but that is including everything:
rear end (I went with an 8.8)
re gear (went from 3.07 to 4.10)
lift (3 inch BDS)
SYE and drive shaft
brakes and rotors
tie rod and steering upgrade (Currie Correctlynk)
wheels tires and tire carrier upgrade.
body lift and motor mount lift (tummy tuck in near future, gotta save up for the adj. control arms and flat pan)

If you are looking at doing it right with a 4 inch susp. lift its gonna cost you.

You can go with a 2- 2.5 with a body lift and save some. Just depends on what you want to do.

You can also look at Zone for their combo lift.

and lastly I would not recommend the 10'' wheels, as you won't be able to air down properly and I think the jeep looks silly on 10's as it reminds me of a roller skate!
