      Rough Country makes a 1.25" body lift. Check them out.
      I own one, but have never installed it (much to SLADE's angst...haha!)

      2-door 1.25" Body Lift (auto transmission): http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep-body-lift-kit-rc600.html
      2-door 1.25" Body Lift (manual transmission): http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep-body-lift-kit-rc603.html
      4-door 1.25" Body Lift (auto transmission): http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep-body-lift-kit-rc601.html
      4-door 1.25" Body Lift (manual transmission): http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep-body-lift-kit-rc604.html

      Read this thread, SLADE makes many good points about using a Body Lift: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/body-lift-suspension-lift-both-3136833/

      And it includes rear bumper brackets.

      Shifter extensions are included for manual transmissions to avoid trimming, cutting, and grinding.
      X2 on the rough country rear bumper brackets. Here's some pics of mine with PA 1" and rough country brackets (prior to purchase I couldn't find any after pics of the bumper with the brackets installed, so I hope this will help some folks)

      Also are "Zone lift " any good ? I hear their shocks are similar to Fox buy not as pretty. Any truth to that ?
      For a JK, you really can't go wrong with Metalcloak, Synergy, or Teraflex. There are a lot of companies that make good complete kits or components for the JK like AEV, OME, Rancho, Currie, Clayton, and JKS. If your looking at budget friendly lifts look into Rough Country. But take into consideration that some of the cheaper lifts will give you the height you want but will require additional parts to give you the ride and handling you want/need.

      Avoid using Cam washers for caster correction and Trackbar frame side drop brackets.

      For what you want, a couple choices would be:

      Metalcloak Overland Sport kit with Control arm drop brackets and rear Axle side trackbar bracket. it's available in 2.5" or 3.5" but if you go 3.5", I would add a front high steer setup to it (raised trackbar and flipped drag link).

      JKS has a nice complete kit with the control arm drop brackets, rear axle side trackbar bracket, and also raised front trackbar with high steer but it steps you into a 3.5"

      Rough country has a good 1.25" Body Lift that can be added if you want more height.

      If you like the appearance of the factory flares but want more tire clearance or a taller look, you can get MOPAR high clearance flares. They allow a 35" tire on the factory suspension and a 37" tire on a 2" lift (I'm sure there are backspacing and bump stop requirements) They look like stock flares and use the same mounting, but are higher to provide more room for the tires and give a taller look.

      If your wanting bare minimum in the lift for budget purposes a couple good options are...

      Teraflex 2.5"

      Metalcloak 2.5" Touring kit
      http://www.metalcloak.com/JK-Wrangler-Overland-Touring-Lift-Kit-p/7122.htm

      Synergy Suspension 2" Stage 1 kit (you'll still see 2.5"-2.75" of lift)
