lift or lower

Well my wife's 2011 grand Cherokee limited is about due for some new tires and I have got her into modifications to cars and trucks since we been together. She loves her jeep since I got it for her I have done a k&n intake, a jet throttle body spacer, and a set of 40 series flowmaters, with 2 12 inch glass packs at the rear and baffled stainless tips with a h pipe, tinted the windows and painted the rims black. My question is I know I can lower it with the eibach springs and put some lower profile tires but I would like to lift it and add some tires with a all grip to give it a tough look but does anyone make a lift for a 2wd gc limited

I think the 2WD and 4WD use the same suspension components (different spring and shock rates), so a set of spacers should work.

Have you given any thought to SRT springs instead of Eibachs?
