Better approach/departing angles, room for bigger tires and more room to flex, less body to get hung up on rocks, stumps, trees, etc. Those are 4 good reasons. Here are a couple of other conveniences as well: Easier to clean the undercarriage with pressure hose, easier to work on your jeep, that is if you have the 3".

Are you thinking of doing one or just trying to be funny?

If you drive the trail right and keep your wheels on top of the big stuff you are cool. But if your bumpers are too low, it can be more difficult to get your wheels up on that stuff. Plus when you come over a big rock, alot of time you will come down on your rocker panels and if your rocker panel is higher then the frame, you can come down on the frame which means, less body damage.

But, you are always better off with a suspension lift over the BL because the SL actually increases your overall ground clearance.

body lift on it's own doesn't give you better approach/departure angles. the frame is not moving anywhere, so the bumpers, suspension components stay where they are too.
