You will also have to take in mind that this is probably going to make your jeep way more top heavy no more pushing it at higher speeds one little bump could send you flying.
But if you want to have "what everyone else can't afford" go for it. If that is what you really want.
Good point about the little bump sending me flying. And rock climbing with the stock wheel base and this lift is unheard of.
Rock climbers keep a low center of gravity

Those are the long arms.

I have coil springs all the way around, not possible to do drop shackels. They do however make polyurethane 2'' coil spacers that ride on the top of the coil to achieve an easy cheap 2'' lift. Here is the problem.
Look at the two pictures. See the first picture the long silver things that go to the belly pan? Then see how those arent there in the second set of pictures.
Those are called control arms. They keep the axle in place. Dont let them sway front/back etc etc. Anyways, there is the stock location, and then after ~4.5'' of lift its generally accepted that you go to long arms which are the long silver things that go to the belly pan. Because those arms shouldnt be at a steep angle, and after the 4.5'' mark is when the angle gets damn steep. There are only a handful of manufactures that make a short arm 6'' lift.
Rough Country (kit is still only a grand even for 6''), Super lift, which uses short arms but makes you redo the brackes (not worth it) and black diamond which I have never heard anyone running their lift.
Anyways this is a great review about the 6'' Rough country lift.
A picture of the control arm -the thing hanging off the frame, going to the bottom of the axle). See how steep that angle is compared to the long arms going to the belly pan??
So yeah it can be done, but only as a budget thing. Which is why the 4'' lift and coil spacers wouldnt work, because that angle is so extreme anything on top of the springs would be unsafe.
But see I have that lift on my stock springs and it works fine.

Defintely wouldnt work unless I hacked up the fenders hardcore. I am more over the giant lift, rather then the giant tires. I want my jeep to just be big. Not have the biggest tires.....
On a side note, yeah the huge lift and 37s would be cool. I was talking to Quick about it at school (shop teacher i am friends with) he said to be careful with getting into to much debt like that just incase something didnt work out and he wanted his money. That would be alot of money for me to pay back right away. I couldnt do it. It might be worth it to go the cheap route with the 35 inch tires (lift pending???????) just so its 1/3 of what the other stuff is to pay off.
