Rubicon express makes a good 3.5" lift. I have the 3.5" with super flex arms and both track bars . I also have a 1" body lift.If you run this kit you will still likely need a sye and cv drive shaft.
The real question is what do you want to do with your new jeep? How big a tire do you want?
If you want a 33" tire you should upgrade to a 93-98 v8 grand cherokee tie rod. You will want to regear your axles and if you have a dana 35 rear a super 35 kit from superior axle would be wise.
Here are a few things to keep in mind. If you go taller then a 33" tire you need all of the above plus new bigger brakes, a steering box upgrade, and if you have a dana 35 rear you need to get a super 35 kit from superior axle, or upgrade to a ford 8.8, or a dana 44 out of another tj. If you go 35" tires you should also upgrade the front axle shafts at very least, but most swap in a high pinion dana 30 out of a cherokee sport. You will still want to upgrade the shafts as well.
Generally I suggest a ome 2" spring with skyjacker hydro shocks, upgraded sway bar links, a ome rear track bar bracket and bump stop extensions . Then add a 1.25" savvy body lift and a 1" motor mount lift. This will give you enough room for a 33" tire and is a good starting point for adding currie control arms, currie track bar, tummy tuck and skids later.
The old man emu springs ride better then stock and unlike the cheap rough country and pro comp springs ome actually last!
