what exactly do you intend to do with it?
If you're just going for a huge look and aren't going to really wheel it, then look at 2" body and 2" suspension lifts and combine the two. splitting the two will keep the complications down. Going higher than 2" on either will cause you to have to address a lot of other things like brake lines, steering and driveshaft geometries, bump stops, and all sorts of issues. 2" of each will keep those issues to a more manageable level for a non-offroad type of guy.
the resulting 4" of lift will clear tires all the way up to 37", but you'll need an expensive regear to go that high. 35" is resonable for a stick and 33" for an auto, depending on the ratio you have stock.
having said all that... keep in mind that the bigger you go, the less roadworthy your jeep gets, and it wasn't really designed to be on-road friendly to begin with...
