edmond Like Oldgus said, your best bet would be to do a BB (budget boost) then add a small body lift. Keep the Jeep like that and as your skill/desire increases you can upgrade later.
You don't have to to a motor mount lift with the BL, you can readjust the fan/shield.

NYLJUnlimited thanks for the info oldgus seems like some good reviews and alot of bad ones. I was really looking for a complete kit to do but I guess I would need more money for that or I just go with what you suggested is it real difficult to do the body lift and motor mount lift. Ive done jeep full complete kit lifts but never body lifts and motor mounts lifts how does that ride thanks.

G54 You could go with a 2" budget boost (BB - spacers on top of your springs) or a 2" - 2 1/2" spring lift (preferable) and then add a JKS 1.25" body lift (BL) and 1" motor mount lift (MML) If you do the install yourself you could get by with the $$ you have to spend. Here's my LJ with that same set-up and 33s:
Edit: I forgot - I also have a 3/4" spacer in front on top of the 2" springs giving me a total of 4" in front with the body lift and 3 1/4 in the rear.

cavediverjc Definitely lift it. LJs look goofy until they're lifted, then they're badass. $650 probably isn't going to cut it for a 4" lift, unless you can split it up between a small spring lift and a small body lift. Typically, a 4" spring lift requires you to also address the driveshaft in the rear by way of a SYE and CV driveshaft. Some Jeeps can get by with a 4" spring lift and a transfer case lowering kit, but you're defeating the purpose there. Do it right and do it once. Use the SEARCH function and you'll find all kinds of modifications here on the board that will help you out.

WELCOME to the forum!!
