I'm in the same boat, looking to lift my 94 (which is a YJ). I have been recommended the RE 4.5" "extreme duty" lift over the standard 4" lift, but was never able to get a real comparison between the two. The consensus was always to get the 4.5" and then get some bilstein shocks. Still haven't done it, but it's on my list for this spring. Be sure to get a quote from some vendors directly instead of buying off their web sites. For example, you can get a decent discount by contacting Extreme Terrain.
I have the RE Extreme 4.5 with Bilstien 5100 and I'm very happy. Plan on an SYE and new CV driveshaft. I'd keep it at 33x12.5x15 tires on 15x8 rims with 3.75 backspacing to keep ftom rubbing. You could go larger tires, but I wouldn't till you upgrade the D35 rear end with a D44 or 8.8.
Nice looking jeep!
