Which lift please help! 97 TJ

Struggling with which suspension lift to get (97 tj 4 cylinder). Want to run 33s and will be 50/50 on/off road. Been reading a lot of reviews. Want a suspension lift, likely a 4 inch. So far seen alot of negative reviews for zone, rough county, and sky jacker. Want some feedback as to what people are having luck with. Please be specific if you can. Pros cons etc.

i havent really seen any bad reviews on the zone lifts...rough country is deff not a good choice the shocks ride rough and are not the correct length and the coils sag, sky jackers coils sag...look into an Old Man emu 2.5" lift with a 1" body lift, currie/savy 3" lift will clear 33s..RCD has a 3" lift with bilstein shocks and could add a 1" body lift

if you are doing 2.5" suspension and 1" body you can most likley cure the drive line vibs with a 1" motor mount lift (since you have the body lifit) and skip the sye
