you could do a 1" body lift, 5/8" shackles and TJ flares. All that would add about that about much extra clearance.

Or, by a small spring lift in that amount.

Other than maybe longer brake lines you should not have any issues.

This is how much room just TJ flares and a little trimming will add

I am confused. If you lift it, it will no longer be stock. So no you can't lift it and leave it stock. You can buy new springs that ride at stock height. Is that what you are asking?

OK. This explains it better.

Your free option is to cut the fender wells out front and rear.

Sounds like it's time for the angle grinder and cutting wheel. That will be your cheapest option like Pokeman said. If you're looking for something more appealing to the eyes maybe a 1" body lift. However since cost is an issue just start cutting. What's the worst that could happen? You wouldn't be losing any money.

are body lifts that expensive? I'd love to get even a small amount of lift on mine, but I am broke.

expensive is a relative term. check out some of the online stores for pricing. Look for the Daystar brand

cutting is a good option. you can find alot of info about "flatty-ing" a yj. lots of people do it. all it costs is cutting wheels and a couple hours. I did it with a buddy and it took one night including repainting with black paint.
