coil spring spacer lift

I want input on this, I want to know if this is a good idea or should I buy a real lift kit? I am on a pretty tight budget until the jeep is paid off. I only want to fit larger tires. I will probably run 31 to 33 inch tires. I don't plan on much off road driving. I just want to get it looking good. If I buy spacers and shocks what else will I need to get to maintain stock driving characteristics? How hard is it to install the spacers?

Couple hours job install, not that bad for a cheap lift, and everything falls back into place. For just a little bit more you can get the coils with shocks, 2 or 2.5 lift, and I think you will be more happy when finished. I have 31x10.50 on mine now with no lift, and it does ok, but I'm also going to raise it 2 inches or so in the near future.

I have a 2" spacer lift and run 32" BFGs tires. I bought new wheels to reduce the backspace so I don't have any tire rub. I do light off-roading. We don't have any rocks to climb around here so it works out just fine for me. You may experence some vibes when you take off from a stop but this is minor. You are using stock springs so the ride still feels about the same. It is pretty easy to install.
