We put a 2" lift on my sons Cherokee by using spring blocks, extended rear leaf shackle and a t case drop. He's since replaced that with a proper lift kit because he wheels it but at the time it looked nice and did what he wanted it too which was allow bigger tires underneath.
I believe the whole kit cost less than $100 bucks off ebay and wasnt too bad to install.
