New jeep help

Hey guys I just bought a 2005 lj rubi and need some advice on the life I am going to put on it. I am trying to decide between

1. Rusty's 3" basic lift with the steering stabilizer, quick discos and hd shocks up front for when I get a winch and stinger. $765
http://www.rustysoffroad.com/jeep-su...basic-kit.html

2. Zone 3" lift with twin tube shocks. $535

http://zoneoffroad.com/product?ki=21&gr=-1

If anyone has had one of these lifts or any knowledge about them I'd love your opinion. Or if you have another 3" lift to suggest go right ahead. On a side note, I'm going to pick up some 33s for the rig and haven't reallyk looked into any tires yet so suggestions would be appriciated.

Thanks!
-Chris

My vote would be the Zone 3" kit with their Standard shocks.

Tires: 33" Goodyear Duratracs or BFG km2 are very popular on here.
