Question Tire/Lift Combo

Hey All,
I'm new to San Antonio and rocks.....
What is the best overall lift and tire combo for a daily
driver/weekend warrior???
Currently I have 33" tall tires but would also consider as big as 36"
My Jeep is a 2005 Unlimited....
Thanks

Define weekend warrior?
do you like rock crawling, mud, show...maybe the beach?
going bigger is going to change your speedo and believe me back in the day I got pulled over for going 70mph and my speedo said 60mph.
Do your homework and check what bigger tires and lift will yield you. You also will be raising your CG. Just a few things to think about and budget....you can save lots if you did the install yourself.

mine is a daily and I have no complaints...be sure to go with a long arm
and only have to lift it once.....I love my set up and it crawls great, drives true and has ZERO shimmy, wobble or vibration...just smooth and comfy, yet it will soak up freeway expansion joints almost as well as it flexs....(ps. read my sig for more)
