Suspension Lift Help

I know there are already alot of threads on this subject but I still can't seem to sort through and get the specifics I'm looking for.... Figured I should just ask!

I have an '03 TJ. Had it for about 7 months now and starting to get into the "Jeep Thing.".... Looking to just put anywhere from a 2"-4" suspension lift on myself as a project but don't wana spend too much. I won't do a whole lot of off roading but I just moved to AZ so it's certainly an interest and it might catch on as a hobby!!

Please help with any input on:
1. Lift size and brand for a mild budget
3. Any extra work or parts that come with specific kits
2. Recommended wheel and tire sizes
4. Any applicable info that I can't think to ask right now

Thanks to everyone in advance!!!.....

Here is my advice. This is my opinion and not all may agree.

3. Any extra work or parts that come with specific kits - Usually nothing else needed with the combo lift. It might require addtional TC drop but for that you need only a couple of washers.

2. Recommended wheel and tire sizes - 15" Cragar Soft 8. Tyres are difficult as it depends on many factors. I am running 31" BFG AT at the moment but will soon be moving to 33" Maxxiss Trepador.

4. Any applicable info that I can't think to ask right now - Enjoy the Jeep!

The Zone 4" suspension lift is also a good option and affordable, I also added JKS Disconnects and an RE front Track Bar. 33" tires and your trail ready. It drives pretty nice on the street as well. Then you can add to it like an SYE and DS to loose the T Case drop etc etc
