Question Recommendations on Lifts vs. Spaces and Wheels

Hello all,
I知 new to this forum and I heard that this is an awesome place to get advice on Jeep mod痴. I知 new to the jeep experience and extremely excited to start modifying my jeep. I recently bought the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL and overall happy with it. But I know that jeep is easily customizable so I want to put my personal touches on it.
I have a list of things that I want to do and pretty much categorized and prioritized as such. First, I知 starting with the Lift. I知 coming from a Hummer H2, and I loved the height and overall ruggedness of my hummer, but was challenged with garage parking, gas, and such; and it was time for a change. So I got the 2018 Jeep JL. Jeeps have the same square body style and ruggedness, but a huge height difference.
I知 more of a street driver and not much of an off-road rider, but would love to do it one day. I知 looking for opinions on lifts and/or spacers. I have been looking closer at the Mopar 2 Lift Kit w/ Fox Shocks by both Quadratec and Extreme Terrain and don稚 know much about spacer. Which one is best recommended? Also, I have been looking at upgrading the wheels to either 33 or 35, but I don稚 want to take away from the classy style of my jeep. If I choose the lift kit instead of the space, which size tires look better 33" or 35"?

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!
