97 zj new to jeeps need wheel and lift advice

Hey guys, I'm new to the whole jeep thing but I just picked up a 97 grand cherokee that i'm planning to lift. I'm looking to clear 33's and I need some suggestions on lifts. How much, who makes a good lift, etc. I've found a few kits around 4"-5.5". This is the range i'm looking for. Any advice would be helpful. Also I've already got tires and I'm looking at 15 x 8 wheels but I dont know what offset I need to go with. Please help out.

check in the FAQ....for all the info you need on lifts and tire sizes....


both have great lifts..IRO is a little cheaper on prices and have great stuff.

4" backspacing works good for the wheels.

oh and welcome to the forum..
