There are tons of older threads on exactly these topics, page back in JeepForum history and read them.

Quality in this order (there are other brands that could fit in-between these names)
Rubicon Express
Rough Country

Unless you trim sheet metal and fender flares, a 3" lift will fit 31's.

You will need other parts that are not included in many lift kits, track bar, shocks, longer brake lines, Slip Yoke Eliminators, etc.

how much money are you looking to spend? To me those kits seem incomplete. Add-a-leafs are generally not great and will most likely sag, you are much better off spending the extra money and getting full leaf packs or doing a s-10 bastard pack. IRO has a good kit that starts at 339, that you can customize to your needs.
You can add the track bar, leaf packs, and SYE as you see fit.
