For a body lift, get the daystar kit. For suspension, what kind of wheeling do you do? Daily driving? What size tire are you going to fit? What gearing in the axles?

1" shackle lift and a 1" body lift less than $ 250. cut the fenders and bolt up your 33's your done hit the woods and disappear.Entry level lift would be the rc lift but if your just looking to improve the off road capabilities a little i would just do the shackle and body lifts.This would all so leave more money in your pocket to spend on some other things.

$250? It's $150 (got mine for $130) for the high quality daystar kit and $55 for a set of shackles from Ground Pounder Fab. And yes that includes shipping and tax.

You should be able to get by without the BL to run 33's. RC lift is fine, lots of haters but there are lots of people happily running them.

1994 YJ Wrangler, 4.0, AX15, NP231, 35x12.50x15 BFG KM2s, 4" RC lift, 1" lift Boom Shackles, 1" BL, 4.10 gears, 8.8 LSD in rear and D30 Aussie Locker in front, on-board air conversion, Ramsey RE8000 winch.
