I would recommend you learn a little more about Jeeps. Knowing what rear axle you have is one of those things you may want to know before you look at ordering a lift. There are plenty of guides, including, if I remember correctly, a sticky in the tech forum. If you're only going about 3" in height, you probably won't need a SYE, so the type of read drive shaft you have isn't important, per se.
As far as wider, it's tough to go wider without changing out the axles. you can improve the look, and make it look wider, by getting wheels with more backspacing, but the increase isn't huge. You might get 1" or so, per side. you can also get a little wider look by putting a wider tire on a narrow wheel. a 31x10.50x15 will look a little wider on a 8" wheel then it will on a 10" wheel (I do no recommend putting that size tire on a 10" wheel).
There are a lot of pictures floating around. Find a jeep that looks like you want yours to look and find out what it takes to get there.
