The first thing that can be done is a quick forum search. It works wonders!

If it were me I would look at some JKU takeoff springs off Criag's list. Usually they come with the Rubi red shocks that I would also look for as they do give you a little more travel to go along with your longer spring travel/lift. Look for 17 to 19 front springs and 59 or 60 rear springs. Should give you about 1.5" in front and about 1" rear. Should cost you about $100 for springs or shocks.

Where are you located? I have a slew of parts that will get you 1-3" with no other major adjustments. Too much of a pain to ship though. 18/59 springs, Rubicon shocks, multiple 1" spacers front and rear, sway bar links etc.

My vote is for the teraflex leveling kit, 2 1" spacers up front, 1 1" spacer in the rear, and new sway bar links. You'll want new sway bar links even if you find a set of take off springs from a four door.

If you go the route of heavier take off springs then look at the serial numbers on your current ones and make sure you go a few numbers up.

My reasoning for the leveling kit is that it takes the guess work out and includes longer links.

Yes, you can find loads if info about this stuff by googling. And you will find a lot more info that way because a lot of knowledgeable people have already worn themselves out answering this exact question. JKs have been around since 2007, your expectation and goal isn't new and is kinda a dead horse.

Yep, 18/59's with a 1/2" spacer in front would be all you can do... Or a TF leveling kit, but even then you get new sway bar links that are needed.
