Hi everyone im new to this forum thing as well as the jeep community.
I just bought a 2013 wrangler 2 door sport, and im looking at lift kits, tires, bumpers and anything else i can do pretty much lol. Just wondering what would be a good 4 inch lift kit thats not going to kill the bank, any suggestions?

4" lift kit will kill the bank. If you buy a cheap one, it'll kill the bank even more.

Before you start slapping stuff arbitrarily on your Jeep, educate yourself. You'll be much happier with the end product.

Some basics, down and dirty style: You can run 33's with no lift. A 2.5" lift will let you clear 35" tires, though there are a number of added costs to running tires that size. You can even run 37's with that size lift and flatties, if you want.

Every inch you go up in lift or tires has extra needs (in order to do it right), which equates to extra $$.

Good crash course on what you need to know before buying tires/wheels for your Jeep: Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!

Start @ end of this one for most recent lifts: JK Lift Reviews

This applies to all JK's, but is especially pertinent to 2-doors:
