Lift Question

I have a 94 YJ and have a question about a lift. What would be the cheapest way for me to lift my jeep. I want to put 31x10.50s on it with 15x8 black steelies. Can I do lift shackles, body lift or what. I have heard you can put a 1" body lift on this jeep without much modification. What would be my easiest and cheapest bet.

If all you want is clearance for a 31" tire, yes, a body lift is your answer.

will a 1 " do it or would shackle lifts be better and make it look better. Also how much lift with shackles should I do.

the tallest shackle i know of for your jeep is 1.25" that would be the easiest route. only for bolts and some pounding, rather multi- point tub lifting and welding...(the front grill body mount gets assisted by two weld on square tube steel brackets) you may then also have to cut out a small piece of your tub floor or bend your shifter if man. trans. you also have to extend your shift and transfer case levers. i've put off this project untill this winter for mine, im not looking forward to it... the four inch lft was probably easier than a body lift. although, all that was for a two inch kit as opposed to a one inch kit.
mine: 95' YJ-4"lift (Skyjacker) 2" body lift. chevy 350/th400/np241 swap. herculined interior, boat drain plugs for floor. TJ hood. 33" MTR. Up next: bigger axles.
