Well seeing as to how I'm never satisfied with anything I think i want a little body lift. But is it worth it and does it really make a diff in looks? Will it make gaps like it does on a pickup? I've never messed with them but I think I want to give it a whirl.

From the ones I have seen, in pics and in person, the most noticable gaps are visable from the front and back of the Jeep. I think there are some kits that offer a plastic dam to bridge the gap. Still noticable but not as much.

Body lifts aren't done for looks or any other 'fluffy' reason. They're a tool used for creating a bit more clearance between the frame and tub, allowing you to tuck the drivetrain or gas tank higher among several other things. I personally wouldn't go higher than 1" (or 1.25"). At that height, it's possible to make it invisible.

If you don't have any plans to tuck (as suggested by Imped) and you don't have any rubbing issues, I would leave it "as is"... because it currently looks great/proportionate with your tires. The more you lift, the smaller the tires will appear.
