I'm looking to buy a 2007 or newer 4 door jk input?

I am looking to buy a 4 door wrangler. I do not have anything real special I am looking to buy meaning doesn't maker sport, sahara, rubicon. I have a few friends that have them and the few things i was told would be really nice is auto windows and locks. just much more convenient. I am looking for something with a lift 3-4 inch. I am looking to put some pizzacutter tires 255/85/16. I will be using it mainly for driving to work with some occasional play. anyone else want to chime in on things I should maybe want to consider. I am looking to spend under 20k with lower miles. thanks
If anyone has any comments or knows of someone selling let me know .

trouble with those size tires is they are all "E "rated. make a very hard ride on Jk.

3-4 inch lift is getting into needing drive lines and the lifts must be complete. High steer kits; at 3" and up Will help the roll center and have better handling. gets much more expensive to do right at 4"

They don't make 33x9.5x15 anymore unless you want Interco. I think they still make the real pizza cutters.

As far as running gear and keeping the axles centered under the jeep, a three inch lift will be fairly complete, and place no real stress on your driveline. I have a tf coil lift with spares, so 2.5 plus .75 for about 3.25 inches of lift. It rides really well.

The real money comes from having to regear. I did run my 3.8 l jku Sahara for a while with the 35's, but quickly decided to regear to 5.13's in the tune of $1600,!

You can fit 33's with no lift, but they look better with a 2 inch budget boost, or even a one inch body lift. And you will be borderline with needing gears. A rubi will not need gears with 33's, as it has 4.11 from the factory(2007 to 2011).
