Too much??

Alright so I've got a 3 inch suspension lift and a 1 inch body lift on my 2000 tj 4.0L, my question is would adding another inch to my body lift, making it a 2 inch body lift, would that be too much? I really want the look of that extra inch, but would it be too off center when offroad? I know it would increase the chance a little of rolling it over, but would it really have that much effect?

this is too much

but srsly I think a body lift of more than 1 inch would look strange. (Ive got a 3 inch on a tj and no body liftIm not thomas newton but the jeeps already top heavy higher is worse, esp if your not gaining any clearence underneath

You could throw on adjustable coil spacers. And adjust it to 1 inch. But if you go more than an inch without slip yoke and cv you'll prob have a little but of driveline vibrations. I have a 98 tj with 4 inch full traction and 33s and I don't have any problem. Mind you I do not have a slip yoke and cv
