Depends on what you are looking to do with it or the look you want. Everything from aftermarket bumpers to roof racks to lifts up to 6 inches is available

Save your money on the cold air intake, will gain nothing at all, only noise
exhaust about the same get a good sound is all
lifts OME or Ironman full springs kit with shocks, both are good, have ran and tested both or jeepinbyals adjustable coilover setups . All available at www.jeepinbyal.com Ironman and OME show 1.5 inches of lift but you actually get 2.5 -2.75 inches , more can be added very easy.
stay with 30 inch tires, 31s/32s be ready to regear to 4.10s
BE VERY VERY CAREFUL SINCE ONCE YOU START YOU CAN'T STOP
On right ( silver one ) stocker with my old ARB on front and then mine on the left, see once you lift 2 inches you want three, then 4 then..........SFA!!!

Little later that day after we gave the silver one a little 3.5 inch boost here at my place

If you stay in the 3.25-3.5 range no need to swap CVs. I've been lifted over 170,000 miles and just had to finally replace my left side CV 3,000 miles ago. OF COURSE some folks can tear up a anvil with a rubber hammer so this info is not 100%
I've done close to 30 KJ lifts all were set up to be in the 3.5 inch range ( after they settled in) and all are running stock CVs. I would recommend using the JBA 4.5 upper control arms, they not only have a replaceable/greaseable ball joint but are also longer to help with alignment issues
3.5 inches of lift will be about 22.5 inches from middle of the wheel to bottom of the flare in front
here is the way we do most either OME or Ironman springs, 1/4 inch top plate, 3/8 inch clevis in front with two upper extra rear isolators in the rear

If its not sagged too bad 245-70-16s will work, minor rubbing when fully turned but if its sagged much at all then 235-70 or something along that height
