My guess is that it's not your jeep. I bet the name on the title happens to be the name of one of your parents.
The guys who are saying do it anyway are idiots. You don't need that approach to life. You will always have someone in life who tells you what to do. And those who have a rebellious streak tend to pay for it over and over.
Here's what I would do, talk to your parents about replacing the springs and shocks. Get prices and while you are at it, get info on a kit that includes springs and shocks for a 2" lift. It doesn't require doing anything else and you can even get a better overall ride out of it.
Gather info, talk it out, look responsible. Get their respect.

I had a rent-a-cop call in my plate once... he was following me around this ritzy hood one night we were fooling around in. I pulled into a driveway and once he was passed I started following him for a mile or so until it was visible that he was getting really pissed. Pulled a J-Turn and then got the f out of there. Later on I found out my dad was working dispatch that night and ignored the rent-a-cop's request to run the plates and for a patrol because he recognized the plates and figured the rent-a-cop called it in wrong haha.

I would pick up the Rubi springs. Their rate is higher so you will see a bit of a "lift".

Nah, just wasn't one to be profiled for no reason and not have some fun with it. Gotta get your kicks somehow when you're 18 and bored as hell. Driving around burning daddy's gas just happened to be the thing to do.

Unless you are paying for the vehicle don't do it. My parents bought my second car for me and I paid my ridiculously high insurance on it along with all the gas, they just covered the loan. It was tough but I waited until it was mine (college grad gift) to do any major modification to it. Discuss it with your parents though and let them know the issue you are seeing. Come to them with cost estimates and even the chance for some time spent working on it together. Showing responsibility in the decision making can go a long way.
