Coil lift question

I'm trying to decide between a 2" REBB and a Rusty's 2" coil lift.
There's only about $100 difference and both come with longer shocks, but I don't know if there is any performance difference between a longer coil and a factory coil with a 2" spacer.
I plan on adding a winch in the next year too, so I'll need something that won't sag under the extra weight too. Do any of you have either of these setups, or can you help me understand the pro's and con's of each?

if your addin a winch go with the rustys coil spring lift so that you can add spacers on the front springs when they sag from the weight of the winch....by the way, here ya go

another option is the BDS 2" coil lift. It's about $20 more than the rusty's when you add shipping to the rusty's price.
I got mine from www.4x4connection.com for $375 shipped. The extra $20 is worth it seeing as BDS has a lifetime no questions asked warrenty, and rusty's doesnt. and the shocks that come in the bds kit ride very nice btw.

By doing a coil lift instead of a BB, you may be increasing the spring rate, which will reduce/eliminate the sag with a winch in the future. You can call or email the companies that you are looking at to see what the spring rates are.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

I'm currently running 31's and they rub,when disconnected, on my factory springs/shocks. Will I be able to run 33x10.5 with a 2" Rusty's or BDS if I add a 1.25 JKS BL?

that was the route i was gonna take and yes it will work my get some rubbing issues being as they are the same width as your current 31's (if you keep stock wheels) from my sig you can see the route i decided to go.

I would love to run 32's, but I don't have an extra $250 for the spacers. Are you running spacers or after-market wheels?

aftermarket wheels. they are AR-23's i did find somewhere out there on the web i did a search in google for BFG MT reviews or something and found a guy with 15x8 stock tj wheels on a tj running 32's without spacers or anything? also if you just do a 2'' BB and dont do a a body lift im sure thats halfway to the spacers you need. my wheels were 95 apeice and tires were 165 apeice. also you can look into khumo's mud terrian. not the new style one but their older tread pattern similar to BFG's they are pretty cheap around 130 i think.

i think the xtra width really makes a jeep look nice

Hey man. I have 32's on mine. I am running 2"spacers, a 1"BL, and stock wheels. I did get the wheel spacers cause I was getting some rubbing in the rear. With no articulation you will rub the inside wall on the spring perch. I just tapped the perch but was unsettling for me. You never know what will happen. I got my spacers for $100 for all 4 from this guy http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/WHEEL...46670200QQrdZ1. It is worth it in my opinion. And I get almost no rub at full articultion. Just a little bit on my narow stock flares. Hope that helps you.

Later,
Brandon

Oh and I have had those spacers for almost a year now and I haven't had any issues. Just some oxidation (sp?) They just haven't been powder coated and made to look pretty.
