Suspension on a 2010 Islander HELP!

I recently bought a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Islander edition and I am in love but I think it is time to start looking into some modifications.
I am new to Jeep Forum, but it looked pretty cool and helpful so I thought I'd try it out

I want a little suspension on my Jeep, between 1.5"-2", and I don't know the best way to go about this.
I was told to do spacers but I have heard some negative impacts spacers have, so I was wondering if a lift kit would be my only other alternative?

I hardly know anything about spacers, or lift kits, ect. so please inform me and give me some advice on what I should do

If you want the best possible ride it is usually best to go with coils (not cheap coils). If you are mainly for looks or on a budget go with coil spaces. You can always go with coils later and sell the spacers and recoup some of your money. I know many people that are happy with just spacers and wheel the shit out of their jeep. You need to answer a few questions like whats the largest tire size you plan on going with. You can go with flat fenders and a 2" lift and run 33'-35" tires just fine. I went with 2.5" TF coils with 35" tires ,then added Bushwacker Flat flares. If you go with 2.5" of lift or taller plan on getting a front adjustable track bar if it is not part of the lift.
