As in 1/1, you can take many ways to lift your jeep. The easy way to my opinion, you can do a spring over conversion by put the axles under the springs.
Other solution I take in a unfinished model I have is to build your own springs and mounting hardware, but it requires a lot of patient and time.
The other way is to buy a photo etched spring system, again you need to do a lot of work, but the finished product will be more accurate.
Any way you take, I think you need to do a lot of research in the 4X4 y off road magazines so you can take your own decision.
Enjoy your build.

4X4s are not my sphere of expertise, but I've seen a lot of guys around here put spacers between the frame and the body on 1:1s. I've never understood the reasoning, as it does nothing to increase the ground clearance at the frame, but it does get more of the lifted look, easily. Maybe that's why they do it.
ya generally people put in body lifts to give the appearance of more lift but sometimes it is just to effectively clear larger tires that dont necessarily need a suspension lift, such as 31" or 33" tires. For the purposes of modelling try adding blocks between the springs and axles.
