I like it. Id just limit the shackle lift to no further than one inch beyond factory length.
The add a leaf.. you would probably be best to find oem stock Yj leafs, take the longest leaf out of each spring, cut the loops/wraps off, and those to the packs. That should alone get you close to an inch boost.

have you looked into a 2.5 - 4 in suspension lift? then put a 1in body lift. then you will be good to go.

you have a yj its spring under, add a leaf isnt going to add a lift like if you had a cherokee.

2in body lift
1in shackle lift

that will be your cheapiest route.
