Front:
12 will work fine. With full hydro and front stretch, 14's can work too.

Rear:
driveshaft angles are the big issue.
No stretch and no cutting 10' in the rear
With some cutting and stretch, 12's.
With all kinds of hacking 14's.

Polyperformance has nice brackets to run airshocks or coil overs on a TJ.

I think you should call PolyPerformance and buy their kit, and ask them. They'll know what lengths will give what heights and be able to give you some good help on tuning the shocks.
