Help Novice on Lift & Tires '06 Unlimited

Just bought 2006 Unlimited Rubicon, I want to add OME 2" lift kit with the HD springs. What else do I need to do? What tires can I run, she will never go off road in any serious manor, its just to look good! Can you guys give me a run down like to go to 32's or maybe 33" dont want crazy wide. Just want a nice look and and better riding on road Jeep.
PS this is my 3rd Wrangler, and I HATED the 2007 Unlimited!

Here is a basic idea... (remember I have much heavier bumpers than stock and winch as well)

OME lift with JKS ACOS bottomed out with 33x12.5x15's.

Same setup with Xennon flares

If her Jeep never sees off road I suggest OME suspension with JKS 1.25" BL and 1" MML. You should be set for daily driving with 33"s. But just remember if you decide to go with the 12.5" wide tires the offset of the stock rims may be an issue. Prob safer to go with 10.5" wide tires instead.

Edit: And expect your MPG to drop a bit when you go with the larger tires.

Thanks for the input. Your pics look great what are you running? I might just do 32" with the OME kit to keep it simple. I am worried about vibration. I know the unlimiteds have better suspension geometry but like I said this Jeep will be a 3 season bikini top only garage queen.
