    That's awesome thank you for the reply. I'm gonna definalenlty look into that lift. I bet a 2 in spacer on top of the lift with allow a 31 to clear nicely.

    Yes before and after pics would be great. Start your own build thread. I think a 2in spacer in addition to the 3.5in springs would be too much for the stubby control arms. You would at least need to find longer control arms. At this point I would look into a Long Arm lift for it as the geometry is corrected with the long arm kit.

    Can't add more than what's already been said. As OFFGRID stated. Wouldn't recommend adding 2 inch pucks on top of a 3.5 inch springs. Youd have your hands full of steering wheel just tryin to keep it on the road. If your lookin to that extreme lift. Would definitely look into a long arm lift as mentioned. But even if you just do a 2 inch puck spring lift with your stock springs. Still gonna throw off your ride.
    Oh yeah....Welcome to the forum. Lolll. Yeah...Post up some pics. We like Jeep Porn.
