If you have leaf springs you can put some bigger shackels on it. I have a 89 YJ and i had 3.5 inches and I liked it but I wanted bigger so I went to and got some bigger shackles and now i have 6 inches or you can go to a local 4 wheeldrive shop and get them to flip the leaf springs on top of the axle. That is just some suggestions i have.

You would have to go with a custom coil, but that isn't the best idea because you throw off a lot of the front and rear end goemetry. the best route is to go to a 6.5" lift, and do some fender trimming. This way you can fit 35s. But any way you go, re-gearing will be needed, and if you are on a budget, then start small... save, and move up from there. WJs are very expensive to build correctly, and it is better to do it right!

Best of luck,
