How much lift on a 90 wrangler

Mine has a 2 inch body lift with 31 x10.50 tires...they scrub a little when turning...can i get rid of the scrubing with some wheel spacers or maybe go with the 2 inch shackles?
also how high can i go without having moving a lot of stuff...I like trail riding I am not into rock climbing so iI dont wanna jack it up a lot and it has new tires so they will be on there for a while.

Getting the right back spaced rims, will alleviate all your rubbing. The correct back spacing is 3.75". I run 12.5" wide tires, and have no rubbing. It will also give you a wider stance, and wider, is better.

There are adjustable stops on the steering knuckles to alleviate your rubbing. Back these out a bit to keep your tires from being chewed up by your leaf springs. As far as more lift goes, I would get rid of the body lift and put a quality 4" suspension lift on it. Your 31's shouldn't look too small with a 4" lift.

I just installed the Rough Country 2.5" Add-A-Leaf kit and was amazed at what a big difference it made. IIRC most folks lift about 2-3 inches without having to install a transfer case drop kit or SYE.

my jeep has aftermarket rims that do stick out further the stock(not sure of backspacing) with a rancho 2.5" lift kit and i have no problems.my tires are 31x11.50-15 and i'm sure i have full steering radius.
