Thanks for all the info guys... I think I'll save some more money up. What are some higher quality brands? Rancho?

What tires will you have. Small tires will look stupid, bigger tires require $$$.
Four 31" Duratracs just cost me almost $800

With a 3.5" lift you'd be in 33" tire range. You might need to get flat fenders or a BL to eliminate all rubbing. Also, look into a SYE and CV driveshaft for this big of a lift, your drivetrain will thank you for it.
High quality brands would be Currie, Savvy, Clayton, Rubicon Express, Rock Krawler, etc.
Some more affordable but still fairly good quality brands would be Zone, BDS, OME, etc.
Of course, everyone (including myself) thinks that the one they own is best and will recommend that one first.

Just curious... What size lift would eliminate me having to buy a SYE and cv driveshaft?

I daily drive mine to. Not much bring my daughter to school and putt around. Thats y i like the jks ride quite and handle great on and off road. Whn i 1st put just the ome lift on it road better on road than stock. Not sure it it was b/c the factory suspension was wasted. All i can say is i did my research for a while b4 i picked one. Like i said b4. U get what u pay for. And when i wanna hit the trails i want something ti do what i want and last a while
