The front tire rubbed once or twice on the rear of my front metal cloaks. See pictures below.
Your going to want to lift it, not only to stop it from rubbing but to give yourself a little more up travel and down travel. Some people may tell you to just bump stop it till it doesn't rub, but stock TJ suspension doesn't have enough up travel to start with, adding more bump stop will just lessen that.
If you lift it 2" you should be pretty safe, you won't need a double cardan drive shaft.
BDS has nice 2" springs
AEV has nice 3" springs
As far as shocks I like the bilstien 5100's
You will need to add bumpstop with lift.
Another option is to leave the suspension alone and do a body lift, that won't increase your travel but will give your tires the room they need.
A 1.25" body lift would also help if you wanted to do a tummy tuck and lift the gas tank up.
I'm just not sure if a 1.25" body lift alone would be enough, but it would help.
