1 inch body lift and 3/4 inch shackle lift?

is this a good idea to get the 1inch body lift (Daystar Body Bushings) and a 3/4 inch lift (Daystar Shackles)? Will this mess up anything, bad idea, need new srings, shocks, or anything else I should be aware of?

You should be ok. The body lift, you might run into problems removing the old bolts. The shackle lift is a small one, I wouldnt go any bigger on that. They should be 1 1/2 longer than the stock ones, and probably stronger.

Whe you put on the body lift you may need to lengthen your gas tank fill and vent, lower your radiator cowl, and change the bracketry on your clutch to ensure it doesn't fall off.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

It is pretty easy to do and worth it in spades because it keeps the center of gravity low and it allows you to still run larger tires. I would skip the shackle lift and get some springs to give you a bit more lift.

What size tire do you want to run and do you off road your jeep? If your looking for a size or to you can cut for TJ flares. Adds a lot of room. The front is hard to make it look good or you can flat fender it when you screw it up like I did
