2" suspension lift should do it, and and set your bump stops appropriately.

I got away with that size tire when I first bought the Jeep. A 2" BB is all I had at the time, and no front swaybar disconnects.

I ran 32s on 2" BB. Adding a 1"BL allowed full flex without rubbing when disconnected. Or you can get tube fenders.

Yes, you will need those with stock backspaced wheels. I had aftermarket wheels with 3.75" backspacing which pushed the tires out enough without spacers.

thats what i figured because we ordered 32 inch yokohama m/t (all they had at my local tire store) they were rubbing in my springs i figured just a 1 inch coil spacer with a 1 inch body lift and some tire spacers would do the trick

Rubbing on the front springs when turning? You can also fix that by adjusting your steering stops.

Stock wheels? You will need spacers most tire/wheel stores will refuse to sell/install them

Those were my favorite tires. Had the same in a 32". I couldn't find them in a 35" when I went taller, so I bought some Cooper Discoverer STT. But they don't flex or grip as well as those Hankooks. I miss them.
