lift question

I want to do a lift, but i dont want to start messing with gears & drivelines and all that sorta thing. whats the highest I can go and whats the best way where I dont have to make any major mods? I was thinking just some 2" shackles & an add a leaf. Budget is tight. I just recently bought the jeep & it has some nice offset rims with 31's but I want to make the tire gap a little bigger.
Thanks for any help.

If your that limited, I'd go with a 1" shackle lift and be good with that. I don't advocate body lifts because I just don't think they look right. Some people like them though so that may be an option as well. A 1" shackle and a 1" tub lift might be a way to go for you too if you want more than just 1".
