Lift kit ?'s

So I am new to the 4x4 world. Just picked up a 2006 Wrangler X. It currently has BFG 31x11.50x15's on it with no lift. I am looking to get into the off-road scene. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good quality lift kit for a good price. I have been researching these things for the past two weeks and keep getting mixed feedback from other users.

I am looking for something I can install myself. Also looking for something I won't necessarily have to drill new holes to install. I know with the Rough Country 4" lift you have to do some drilling. I would like to leave that stuff alone.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

For ~$529...check out the Zone Combo. Still has minor drilling.

Here is a recent similar thread:

You will have to drill something with every lift even if its just a track bar hole.

This should be known sorry if its upsetting

I'd run skid plates on stock suspension and nice shocks with a winch, learn your jeep and then after wheel'n decide what size tires you want.

That's what you should build your lift around. Figure that out and you can start getting better answers to your questions.

The setup 6inarow posted would be a great on and off road and you run 33s easily with it. 33s should get you around a good deal of off road areas yet stay reasonable on road.
