Lift advice please

I am looking to lift my YJ here soon but have gone back and forth on what lift to go with and am hoping that some of you could share your experiences and knowledge to help me choose the right one. I am looking to lift 4" give or take and running 33's. Stock gearing and Adela but one day in future will upgrade. I want to trail ride but will be using this as a DD part of the time.
Right now I am leaning towards OME 2.5 lift, reverse shackles and a 1" body lift. This will give me about 4" total. OME I know is great but looking at $1500 makes me post this. Just want to get feedback from any of you to help make up my mind.
Thanks in advance for the help......Duey

Old Man Emu is one of the best lifts that you can buy. Makes your jeep ride like a caddy.

What engine/trans/gears are you running?

there are a TON of lift threads just like this that have been going round for the past week or so. try to do a search so we all don't end up typing the same stuff again.
