How high should I lift my jeep

Some of you have suggested that I lift my jeep but I'm not really sure how high.
How does this look?

Drive shafts, Who needs drive shafts to get around!

Top speed is about 200 MPH and it can really climb hills good!
It is a little loud, but I'm looking at installing a better stereo system.

This lift is a little small for what I wanted, but I think it's a Bell Jet Ranger.

I'm told that death wobble and high winds can be very dangers if you go too high without the right equipment.
And a simple question, At what height do people normally install an onboard air system??



Oh, and the one under the jeep is a Rubicon Express, RE8300 4.5" long arm kit
