Noob lift questions

Howdy, guys!

So, I'm a first time TJ owner. A first time wrangler owner, for that matter, and I am gonna lift this little puppy. I just don't know what all to do. I've got a couple of lifts in mind, but I'm not sure what else I'll need with all the upward movements and larger rubber and whatnot. The 2 I like are Rancho and Skyjacker in the 3.5-4" range so I can stick some 35's under it.

So... Which of the 2 is the better lift? What else do I need? Hit me with all the brutal details. I'm new to the upward game, but I've done the downward game before. I understand most of the parts, so be as technical as you please. If I don't know what you're talking about, I have heard of the Internet before, and I'll look it up.

Thanks, jeepers!

What made you choose those lifts? What is your budget for this project excluding tires? What axles are you running?

I wanted to do the same exact thing as you a while back but then I decided it's not even worth it. To make a Tj run 35's properly will take a lot of money and a lot of modifying to make it ride right. On too of that it will strain everything else and it most likely won't drive like stock quality. I recommend running some good 33's on a 3 inch lift and even adding a 1inch BL.
