Question noob lift and tire question

i really like the list and tire size of this jeep that i found online, and i just want to know what the size of it is, if you can tell. Now i have a 2.5 inch lift and 31's
What would i need to do to make this happen? could i do it with shackles?
thanks!

NO, there's no safe way, probably no way at all to get that with shackles. Check out the lift sticky at the top of the forum, and you'll get all the lift info you need to decide what's best to fit your needs/wants/budget.

a 1.5" shackle lift will only get you 3/4" as it only lifts one side of the spring. There's a reason why jeepers refer to the long shackles as the horns of death.

if it is a 4 inch lift, you could add a 1 inch lift shackle and a 1 inch body lift if you didnt want to go with new 4 inch springs.
