Tj tech question

Ok I already have a pretty decent trail rig that I built up over summer but after going I decided I wanted just two inchs more of clearance ( I have 33" tires) I ended up getting a 2.25 susp and a 1.25 BL and shocks all that hoopa. I refuse to try to sell out my semi new lift to get a true 4" range lift I've talked to a few people about adding in a true 2 coil spacer and I've heard only negative from a dodge truck owner. I'm looking to see if anyone else has this or has experience of long run use. I also went against dropping my t case because I never had bad vibrations so I know with this added two Inches in my best interest it's time for the drop :-/ But I feel it's worth it consdering alot of my height already has it dropped. I do intend to get an SYE but that's not happening until summer ..

Now I've read that the body lift does help with some of the angles I guess all I'm really saying is if I add these spacers and drop the t will it hold out until summer for a sye?

its not the body lift that helps with the driveline angles.. its the motor mount lift..

and if your already running 3.25'' lift.. imo 2'' would be too tall for 33s.. i run about 3-3.5'' with 33s and it works great.. i never did an actual tc drop kit.. kit some longer bolts and a few washers

i did notice your front sags.. so if you do any spacers at all.. id add 1'' bb in the front to help level it out.. if you do go any bigger on your jeep.. yoou gotta look into control arms and track bars.. thats my problem right now.. i need aftermarket control arms

Ya that's why I stoped at this lift height but I wanted more ground clearance. My bf has a 4" susp and he only had to drop his tcase so I'm going with 4" is safe before you need to do crazy stuff

dropping your tc only lowers your ground clearance.. a tummy tuck/sye is the only way to gain real ground clearance.. why raise your jeep an extra 2'' to only drop the tc back down an inch.. not including losing flex

my ex had a 4'' lift and 35s and my jeep made it through way more obstacles than hers

also.. like i said earlier.. my problem is control arms.. im only at about 2-2.5'' in the rear and im havin problems with my axle shifting forward when i flex.. you cant really tell in that pic but its there.. also its doing it slightly in the front as well
