On a Commander (XK) you can go 2.5" without any major upgrades anywhere else. Note that doing this lift will put you front UCA (Upper control arms) at a different angle, causing them to wear faster, either keep them swapped out frequently, or get some JBA UCAs (expensive). While your in there, believe me when I say replace the UCAs while the strut is out putting the lift on.

If you go bigger than than (most likely 4" Superlift), there is a lot more to do involving angles, spacing, ect..

I personally went with a 2.5" ebay lift for like 90 bucks, offset/backspaced wheels 17" and running 265-70-17 tires.. pinch weld mod and your done..
