the Bilsteins will work with both sets of springs as well for about 1/2 the cost.
for the amount of snow we get on the coast I wouldn't bother swapping springs for only 1" or even 2" extra clearance (unless you plan on going to whistler or up the coke in a blizzard ) If you must have clearance use a spacer or taller mud/snow tire
Exactly what I plan on doing. Finally got the girlfriend interesting in ATV-ing/snow mobiling so we will for sure be going upto whistler in the coming months to do a little snow mobiling. I'm gonna try to get into snowboarding too seeing how cheap I get snowboards @ work.

I got a question, do you know any reliable "jeep" mechanics (not the stealership!) with access to a tranny flush machine? I'm going to have my mechanic drop the pan and put in new filters + a new gasket. Looking for someone to do the fluid flush, or do you know of any good local transmission shops with experience with jeeps?

Re: Eibach springs + what shock?

For a trans. flush, any lube joint can do it. I think it's about $80. check it for leaks after...
