If you are planning to run 31" tires for a while, I'd recommend picking up a basic 2" budget boost/spacer lift . . . the kits are pretty inexpensive and will come with everything you need . . . 2" spacers for above the springs, new shocks, bumpstops, etc. If you want to down the line you can add a 1" or 1.25" body lift (do NOT put more than a 1.25" Body Lift on your TJ) and run 33" tires. If your springs seem saggy now, you might look into either finding someone with a 05/06 Rubi and buy their stock springs or you can buy a kit for a bit more coin that comes with new and longer springs instead of putting a spacer above your stock ones. You shouldn't have to worry about anything with this set up, but you will need an alignment anytime to adjust your ride height.
