New to me, stock 2004 Rubicon

I just bought a new stock 2004 Rubicon. My end goal is to have 33 Cooper STT. Im looking for a tire that is aggressive offroad, but still good on the streets. I have an 83 CJ-7 w/ 33 KM2s and while theyre great offroading, you can tell theyre not that good on the hwy.

For lifts I was thinking about 2 coil spacers, longer shocks, 1.25 body lift and maybe 1 motor lift. Other forum members have remarked on here that its a good entry level lift and would meet my desire for 33 tires.

Ive researched TeraFlex 3 Premium Suspension System and have found mixed reviews. Ive also been seeing a lot of great reviews about Iron Rocks TJ 3 Ultimate Short Arm Lift Kit. (which is also about $1000 cheaper even when you upgrade to the Blistein 5125 shocks over the stock hydro shocks) Rubicon Express 3.5" Superflex Suspension looks ok, but that's another 0.5" taller?

I have a good friend who installs suspensions, so hell help me install it for a song and dance. So I have a chance to go ahead and do it right the first time.

I live in FL and my other Jeep is great mudding. I want this Jeep to be fine hitting the trails around FL, but when I desire I want to be able to drive it to CO, offroad the Rockies and drive home. Am I shooting to high with the 33s? With a really good lift kit, can I still have the great road control? Should I drop down to 32s?

Any thoughts or advice would be great appreciated.
