CJ5 need help with lift and tire choice

I have a '81 CJ5, its myDD, and want to get a 4" lift but i need to know which ones have what you need, ride good and arent too expensive.
I also am looking for 33x12.5x15 tire that looks aggressive and is pertty capable for the occasional excursion. If anyone has pics too that would be great

i dit the 2 1/2 inch kit from tuff country and it was like riding with no suspension for the first 2-300 miles then it started getting nicer. Those are 31x10.50s for reference. I know its not a four but it something to consider. I was gonna go four too then saw some pictures and realized I am not rock crawling lol.

I did the 2-1/2" BDS lift, which included the shocks and all hardware for ~$700 . Tires are Goodyear MTR..
