99 Sahara Build. Need your Help!

I'm a newbie to this just to warn everyone, but your advice is much appreciated. I want to put a 3 inch lift on my jeep and some 33's. So to start out with what do y'all recommend. First problem: my dad thinks 33's will be too big for the front differential. In the front is a D30 and i assume a D35 in the back.

Don't assume. Just look at the rear axle--you might have a D44. The answers to your questions are everywhere on this forum. Search.

BTW, your D30 is fine with 33's.

the front won't be a problem on 33's. The rear can be a problem. Go in the sticky FAQ above and look at the pictures of axles. ID what you have out back.

next question: What lift do you guys suggest. At first i was gonna do the RC 3.25 but then i was looking at 4wheelparts and the 4 Wheel Hardware 3" inch lift. shocks and everything included for like 650. The only i dont like about the 3.25 is with the body lift the space it puts between body and the bumper. which i think is very noticeable. This is my daily driver and i go to a private school where everyones parents pay for their stuff. this is all on me and i just want to have something nice. Little offraoding here and there, but nothing serious. thanks for your help guys.
