well... assuming (yeah I know what that means) they are 2".... just in that realm you could get larger coil spring spacers... 2.5"-3" and some tires 35s beyond that and you are gonna need bigger pockets

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
You're gonna want this guy's pockets, once you start modding your Jeep.



Browse the forums regularly, you'll see plenty of tips on cheap mods ( such as painting your headlight bezels).
Also watch craigslist. You can often find used parts there when someone upgrades their suspension, armor, appearance, etc.
I see Jeep rims and bumpers pretty regularly on my local forum. Even the occasional lift kit and tops.

How much lift do you want? I'm buying an OME kit (2 1/2") for suspension lift and a JKS 1 1/4" body lift for 33's. OME is a very highly regarded company.

If you are new to the Jeep stuff I would recommend driving it like it is for a while and do a lot of reading and research on here so you can educate yourself as to what you will need if you even need it. A lot of people are very content with set ups just as you already have.
