I'm not sure what you're looking for exists as an out of the box package.

There are a few companies that make 1 or 2" spacers for the XV. Not exactly a lift really. Given our unique driveline I don't think its a good idea to mess w/ the suspension geometry all that much. Also gotta watch out for wheel offsets that put too much stress on the hubs. Es no bueno.

I've also read that the spacers add a bit of ground clearance but don't help much with tire width since you aren't getting any more tire clearance within the wheel wells.

Beyond that I don't know if any company makes a true lift that retains the factory geometry. It would probably involve some serious cutting and welding of the subframe. At that point its a custom job and you might as well swap in some solid axels. Or buy a Jeep. ;D

I was more looking at what is currently available; spacers etc. I really just want to see how noticeable the difference is.

I think AWDfreak has them along with a bunch of other goodies. He has a build thread with some great pics... I'll try to link it here.
