Nice. Congrats. Your rig will look very nice with that setup. Look through that thread I linked to. I'm sure there are some shots of that setup with no lift.

I would definitely go with 17s and something closer to a 33". One of the best looking wheels out there in my opinion is the XD Addicts. Those on Duratracs or Trail Grapplers just look dead sexy. It would be what I would run if I was sticking with 17" wheels.

And here is a thread at JK-F dedicated to 33s with no lift. Should give you plenty to think about.

Maybe i should just stick with 18s, same size wheels and tires it has now, just aftermarket wheel n tires....Decisions, decisions!!!
Be much cheaper to go with 17s.

You could do a 15, 16, or 17" wheel. As far as tire size goes, are you going to take it off road much? The smaller the rim you get, the less expensive the tires will be + give you more rubber which is better for off road.

You can do up to a 33" tire, but may rub at full turn or off road depending on your setup. 32" will fit with no issues.
