Welcome to the forum, don't get in a great big hurry and throw the plastic down at Quadratec. Many newbs make huge mistakes modding their jeeps and end up wasting lots of money on bolt on crap that ends up giving them shitty rides and headaches. Many also buy based on cost instead of what is in the box which is a big mistake. Lots of info on here so use the search and if you cant find what you are looking for or are confused (loots of poor info on here too) post up your questions. Do your research as buying one thing typically leads to having to buy another. A typical rule of thumb on some costs 35's on a 2.5" lift will run you around $2500 37's on a 4" lift done right will run around $10k 40's and tons can go $25k+. If you don't wheel at night don't throw away money on a 50" lifght bar mounted to the top of the windshield, you just look like a poser.

Good luck with the mods.

Some build info here:
