I'm actually going to replace my black steelies with Ion Alloy 174's myself when I replace my tires in the next few months.
I personally think Jeeps look good with a 3.5-4" lift and 33's as the minimum, and is fairly pretty straight forward. When lifts and tires get much bigger, it becomes much more difficult.
My lift is a Rubicon Express 3.5 (seems to be much closer to 4-4.5"), but there are plenty of of lift options. Some cheap and crappy, some cheap and decent, some more expensive and better, and some more expensive and not really better. I'm not the authority on lifts, so I won't pretend to be, Beware of the forum horn dogs though. They'll be out in full force here shortly.
In addition to that, some will want you to charge $10k on your credit card because they want to build their rig through you with their posts. Best thing to do is be clear on what you really want from your Jeep.
