4.5" RC Lift w/ 32's

I am new to this community and I'm doing a lot of research to start my first project. I have a 98 xj sport and was looking into this kit
http://roughcountry.com/jeep_xj_4.html

I want to run 32" tires on it without having to trim. Is that possible and if now could I run 31's? Lastly, is this kit all I would need to get my jeep looking good? I am limited to a budget and don't do a lot of hard trail riding but just wanting something that looks nice and has performance and is easy to install.

make sure your wheels have the right backspacing, it will say on rc.com in the details section for the lift what you need and i recommend bump stops. either after markets or keep your stock ones and set 1 or 2 hockey pucks taped together inside your front coil spring before installing it

Thanks for all of the replies. I will probably end up going with the 4.5" w/ 32's and trim a little. I drive on pavement about 90% of the time so I dont think rubbing will be much of an issue.
