Question Lift Kits?

Hi everyone I have been reading this forum since i bought my first jeep which was on January 1, 2011. I just signed up today on the forum because i am thinking strongly about getting a lift kit for my 06 TJ. I do lift off roading, i am a daily driver and just want my jeep to have a better look. I am looking to put 33's on it after i get the lift. So what i have been reading is that i need a 3" to 4" lift. Does anyone have any suggestions on the lift to get or have any thoughts on what i should do?

I'm in the same situation with my 05 TJ. I've read that Zone has good systems but I'm still researching.

Yes i have seen those. I like those and I like the Rubicon Express 3.5 standard suspension lift. Its a little more but i have been reading that they make really good quality products. I am a huge noobie at this and I really want my kit to last for a while! I just don't know where to start.

Zone and Rough Country I would recommend if your on a budget. I assume that $800 needs to include tires as well? I have a 4" Series II Rough Country with a 1" BL and I like it a lot. I have had it for over 5 years and only changed the shocks to the new 2.2s, and added track bars, and other accessories, you get the point. If your goal is to run only 33's, then Rough Country's 3.25" Kit is only $369.95. And if you call up RC and ask for Jeff, and tell him your a Jeep Member, you get 10% off your order.
Jeep TJ Suspension Lift

I originally had 33s, but now run 35s. Here are two pictures. First one is 33s with a 2" Rubicon Express BB lift with the 1" BL, 2nd is 33s with 4" RC/1"BL and last pic same lift but with 35s. 5" lift with 35s is big, the picture doesn't do justice. Enjoy!

Thanks for the pictures! You've got one sick jeep. Does anyone have a Zone lift kit? or any other lifts? That they would recommend.
