Advice on lift...

Just looking for advice on a lift for my TJ;

I bought her with a 2.5 Old man lift, and the guy was running 33x12.5 tires, which rub a little when off road. Running 32's will most likely work better with that lift, however, I want to continue with the 33's, I like the size. I would like a 4 in lift so I can better clear obstacles, do I need to purchase a new lift 4 in lift, or can I just add 2 inches to what I have? My knowledge is limited when it comes to suspension. I want good articulation, but not looking to run 35's or anything. This will be my first big mod to this jeep, want to do it right. Thanks everyone.

If you just want more room for the 33's then put a 1.25 body lift and a 1 motor mount lift. But if you want more ground clearance for the t-case skid then do a 4in lift
