cheap and easy way would be 2" body lift and 1" lift shackles, don't think you will need to do anything else, maybe longer shocks

i dunt think a SPOA is 50$ ish a bit more, but body lift and shackle lift,

SPOA is deffenetly a good way to lift but not allways that cheap.

shocks, lines, pitman arm... etc..

yeah 50 covers spring perches............unless you fab your own....have access to cutting and welding equipment...........and have longer shocks on hand......and some type of ott steering setup to properly regain geometry for the street......oh and dont forget longer flex lines front and back unless you fab a bracket...."stretch" the hard lines and remount the anchor for the lex lower on the frame...............
my guess is the body and shackle lift ....even though i personally am not fond of extended shackles...............will be your cheapest and easiest route short of fender hacking....trimming i mean......to fit your very reasonable 32's

oh yeah......s.y.e. kit and double cardan rear shaft would probly be a must for spoa...maybe a look at front shaft too......probly a t-case lowering kit to relieve start vibrations too.......in any event you should probly look at a body lift kit cause it will include things like shroud/rad lowering........fuel fill extension (tho probly not required for only an inch or so)..and new appropriate body mount bolts...........not just some unfit and unsafe threaded rod/ready rod.
Good luck

Please you guys driving stockish YJs do not do a S.P.O.A on the stock springs I have been dealing with the jeeps for many years now and the stock springs in the YJs are not built to work in that app they are to weak and soft.The springs sag out very quickly and most people complain about way to much axle wrap.I have yet to drive a S.P.O.A. Jeep that drives as well as mine on the street and I will put my spring under CJ up against any spring over Jeep on the trail.To do it properly will cost you as much or more than a good susp. kit.

To fit the 32s on your YJ the 2 in body will be enough with minimal rubbing with the stock flares and none if you put on the TJs, also agree with rebulon if you do this buy the kit gives you everything you need and is much safer than trying to BS it yourself.For the money save yourself the headache.

Listen to nutbar, as we speak he is installing a ladder bar on my SOA YJ. I have broken 3 pinion yokes in the last year due to axle wrap. In that vein I have a set of 4 daystar greaseable shackles that give you about 1 1/4 inch lift. Asking $100 for all four.
If I was to lift a stock YJ, I would probably not go SOA ecspecially if I wanted to increase the torque or horespower in the engine as well

Jeep eh

ive got tj flares on my yj and i just trimmed the fenders a little wider to match the shape of them and ive got 31s on my jeep with no lift and they almost never rub so even just a 3 inch body with tj flares would easily fit 32s

I'm running 31 on my stock rims on my YJ with 2" body lift, and 1" shackle lift. The only problem I am runing into right now is the front tiers rubbing my springs and binding when I turn hard.

adjust the steering stops
