Go to the TJ technical forum and read through the FAQ. There are lots of links and great write ups on how to do it.

Body lift is cheep and can fit bigger tires. Usually $100 to 200. Makes room to push the t-case up so you have better ground clearance in the middle of the jeep.

What about the front and rear of the two jeep? Nothing you can really do? And how much and how easy is a 1.25 or a 2 inch body lift. Yall said 1.25 so is it easy like I can do it at my house?

As for front and rear of the jeep, well you can get different bumper or cut the ends off. Make them stubby bumpers. If you are hitting your axel on things, try a different line.

And yes you can do a body lift at your house. Floor jack, blocks of wood, and hand tools. Videos all over you tube on how to do it.

what about the front and rear?

body lifts are pretty straight forward and require minimal tools. a 1" mml usually goes hand in hand with a bl. stay at 1"-1.25"

sure, you can go with portals

in all seriousness, the only way to get the axles higher is to run some bigger meats

are you on stock rims? even a 33x10.5 could rub with stock backspacing

Also a little light reading for you: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/so...y-tuck-942018/

That helped me when I was first starting out.
