Well if you want 33's then I would suggest a 2.5 or 3 inch kit. Tera's basic kit without shocks runs around 300 for the 2T and 400 for the 3T both will let you run 33's. Tomken also makes a nice 2.5 kit and Rusty's makes a 3 inch kit, all are very reasonable in price. The reason I would sway you away from Superlift or the Skyjacker is because of price, and also the need for a SYE. You can run a 3 inch kit with the stock control arms and still have a very flexy rig, the 4 inch springs on stock arms is really pushing it so the Basic Superlift is kinda out of it, and their rock runner upgrade is nice but very $$$$ about 450 and axle. The Skyjacker is nice but as you said very $$$. When I first started wheelin my 98 TJ, like most I didn't know what I wanted, certainly di not want to look cool. After some research I went with the Tera 2T, and I got about 3 inches of lift and plenty of room for 33's with almost no rubbing when I was disconnected...and it was a crawler. Later I added some 1" spacers front and rear to accomadate future addons like winch, swingaways and what haveya,and a 1" body lift, this gave me a solid 3.5 inches of suspension and an extra inch for the tires in the fenders at full flex. Perfect in my mind not too much and not too little. the total cost has been about 1000 bucks spent over a 3 year period...next I will be replacing the control arms. Sometimes you have to wheel it, buy it, build it, then wheel it again before you really appreciate what a Jeep can do.
