I'm no expert on lifts, but here's my .02... with the Scrambler you have the longer wheelbase, so you won't notice as much degredation in handling by adding a lift. If you're going mainly for looks with a little off-roading, go with a 2.5 inch kit. Almost everyone makes them, and unless you're going to get into serious off roading, choose one with medium to soft springs. a 2.5 lift should give you enough room to run 33's if you need to, but you're probably looking at 31's for a daily driver. Just my thoughts, good luck.
It's not so much a labor of love as it is shear determination.
