yet ANOTHER lift/spring question...baby lift

So I have a 94 YJ that I'm basically using for a pavement pounder right now to save miles on my truck and because...well it's a jeep. I do a bit of easy offroading, mostly ORV routes and sand dunes. So here's my question... i need to replace the springs and shocks on it. It looks like it would be quite a bit cheaper to get a small lift then to try and buy new stock stuff. I would like to go with a 1.5"-2.5" lift, but I just put new 30" BFG's on that I would like to keep on it and not look stupid . anyone have any suggestions?

i should be more specific...i know there are lots of kits out there for these smaller lifts, but has anyone used them? superlift has a 1.5" kit, RC has the 2.5" (which is cheaper) but everyone seems to say you end up getting more lift than stated...and my 30" tires might look too small. and do i need Tcase lowering or anything else like that?

yeah i saw that post, that's what made me question it in the first place! looks good though, just more than i need i think. I have an XJ on 33's for wheeling but now i do most of my offroading on atv's so it just sits most of the time. Anyone try any 1.5" suspension lifts? probably tough to find anyone who has because most go bigger huh?

i did a lot of looking around when i was purchasing because i already had a body lift and didn't want to suspension jack it to the moon. i think fabtech is the only one who makes a 1.5 inch lift. i threw my papers away that had them all listed, but i really believe they are the only ones.

i don't see one from fabtech, but i know both superlift and black diamond make a 1.5". all my XJ stuff came from Rusty's or RE. Guess I'll just try that BD one and see how it comes out.
