WK is completely different than a WJ. Apples to oranges.
My WJ is lifted, 2" in the front, 1" in the back , plus UC coils all around. It sits level. I run 255/65/17's, but thats mainly because I bought the tires shortly before I lifted it. I could definitely get away with a larger tire.
I've had the lift for about 30k now. I have commuted 150 miles a day on the highway for the last 2.5 years (part-time/seasonal), and I've had no drivability issues. That being said, I spent alot of money to do it right the first time. There is nothing "budget" about a budget boost.
Spend a little $$$$ on some quality shocks (I made the mistake of buying POS Rubicon Express Twin Tubes- the two front shocks blew within 10k), get the JKS Adjustable Track Bar with Kevin's Super Hard bushings, do the DoubleJZ shock mod to whatever rear shocks you buy, and make sure coils are seated properly in the perches...otherwise you'll be pulling your hair out diagnosing random bump steer issues.
I installed the lift myself with the help of a friend.
