Suspension and lift replacements

I did some searching and reading on this subject but thought I would ask. I would like to add a modest lift for looks and some light offroad performance. I have a stock 1998 sport and am on a tight budget. I will probably stick with the stock sized tires. The Wrangler has 110,000 miles on it so as I replace worn suspension parts i would like to mindful about lifts that i may want later.
thanx

i lifted my jeep using a 2'' procomp kit (at first to replaced stock coils and shocks) but later found out this wasnt what i wanted.. then i added piece by piece to my kit as i went on..

if your wanting to replace STOCK parts.. id look for used RUBI coils (different spring rate and wont sag as bad) used/cheap coil spacers, and good shocks (Rubicon express monotubes or OME nitrocharged)


a 2'' coil spacer kit with good shocks for a 2'' lift will set up back around $350.. throw in a body lift and you can run a 32'' tire with no problems.. 31s look great on this setup too..
