When I bought my 98 TJ it had 31" tires already, but I thought it didn't look right; too low, not enough clearance between the tire and the flare:
So I added a simple 2" coil spacer lift and now I think it sits really well, not too high and plenty of clearance to the fender.
I think it's a good route to go. Cheap, simple, and effective. It also didn't affect how my Jeep handled.
Before and after pics. Sorry about the size.

In the long run men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, though they should fail immediately, they had better aim at something high.
In the depths of winter, I finally learned that there was, within me, an invincible summer.
