a cheap way would be a 2 inch spacer lift and a 1.25 inch body lift. Or just get a 3-4 inch suspension kit. Either way, it's not too difficult. Spacers will be cheaper than a suspension kit.

every time I look at my Jeep I love it more and more

Since you said low cost, cheapest route would be a 2" budget boost (coil spacers with shocks) and a body lift.

Total I think that would run you inside of $500.
