lift? for my new yj

hey everyone I am new to this board, just joined today. seems like there is a lot of info here and quite a few experienced jeepers. I just bought my first jeep a few weeks ago, a 95 yj I-6 with a five speed and hard top......I had been shopping around for about three months for one but most that I saw were high miles and a/or a lot of rust. Only 57,000 miles and no rust to speak of.

Anyway, on to my question. I am basically looking for some advice on lifts. I am looking to run about 33's and I don't want the tires to look too small for the amount of lift. I was looking att he RE soa conversion but when talking to the guy at RE he otld me that the springs would wear out quick with that lift and that they sold replacement 1.5" springs for 125 each. that would definately 33's look stupid. Does any one else sell stock height heavy duty springs that hold up to the added stress of a soa lift?
Another lift I am considering is the pro comp coil conversion, however I think I read that the kit can only be used with the D35 axle. Is that true? Have they made a kit to fit possibly a ford 9" or a D44? I also read that the max wheel width is 8", what is the reason for this? Can 10" wheels be used? My long term plan includes an axle upgrade to one of the previously mentioned axles, with an ARB and 4.10 or 4.56 gears. It seems that the procomp lift is not highly recommended from reading past posts but thought I would ask anyway to see if anyone had first hand experience with one. Am also planning on a Tom Wood's CV driveshaft and a SYE. Sorry that this is so long but as you all know the possibilities are endless when it comes to a jeep.

You have already talked to RE and may want to consider their 4.5 inch extreme duty spring lift. It'll allow for the 33s. I've got one on order (they're out of front springs) and plan to put on 33s when it's on. The kit seems pretty complete, as well it should be considering the price. FYI, Central 4 Wheel Drive sells the kit for about $120 less than RE themselves.
