If you want to lift it, go with a 2.5" lift. This will give you some more clearance and the look and also not cost lost of money to fix geometry problems that a taller lift will cause.

I recommend the Teraflex spring lift with an adjustable front track bar.

Keep it mild. Use just enough suspension lift to get into around a 10" travel shock. Most of the 10" travel shocks will need 1"-2" bump stops (some a little more) so you will need around 2" of lift (2.5 would be fine).

Just to reaffirm, a 2.5" lift would be perfect. I have the Teraflex kit and it's exactly what I needed. It's quality stuff and easy to install. I don't rock crawl either, just alot of trips to and from the beach.

Are those the 10:50/34 tires? Or are they the metric? What back space are the wheels? I'm looking to do similar.

Get whatever lift and height you want. its your money, if you want tall go tall, if you want squatting go squatty. If you do a lot of hunting, and I'm not sure what kind, I usually have a lot of weight with me. Tree stand, hunting box, cooler, guns or bows, sometimes a buddy and his gear, d look into heavier duty springs.

My experience... I started with a 2.5" budget boost... to get it to drive "right" I ended up doing everything a 3.5" lift requires. So, in the end, I added 3.5" springs/shocks.
So, for your uses, I would level out the front with some 3/4" spacers and call it a day.

I put 34s(285 75 17) on my stock jku. And it was fine until i hit the trails then it had a very minor rubbing issue in the rear. Then i install a 2" front 1" rear teraflex coil spacer lift. Its perfect for what i use my jeep for
