Lifting an 08 grand cherokee?

I need to know about just lifting the body on my jeep as opposed to lifting the suspension.. If l lift just the body 2 inches what are my options for tire size, and will my stock suspension be ok off road till i can afford a nice one? any advice helps and links to body lifts or otherwise Ive found a few but open to options, Thanks

08 Grand Cheroke 3.7

Try a search in the top left of the page. Someone may come along (more knowledgeable than me) but for the most part folks get a little annoyed when people don't do at least a little of their own footwork.

Here's a search example for you: https://www.google.com/search?q=site...&client=safari

No body lift exists for a unibody vehicle.
