I was going to say if it were a YJ do a spring over (5 1/2") and a 2 inch body, my buddy drives a Jeep he calls Unforgiven and he has that setup.

if you really want to blow people away and have some money i would invest in the rock ready 8" sky jacker. also get skid plates. this is a great looking set up and will clear 38's . it looks really cool because its red.

I say stay away from a body lift even though it is only a show jeep. Body lifts are ugly as hell and make it look like crap. I'd say the 8" skyjacker would be a good lift too. clears 38's, can actually perform well off road, and it looks a hell of alot nicer then a body lift. and if you don't like red you can have it all powder coated what ever color you like.
