Exclamation Jeep lift help needed QUICK

Okay guys, so here's the deal. I got a 1997 Jeep Wrangler. She already has a 4 inch RC Suspension lift and is on 33x12.5 Procomps. I found a add on craigslist for coil spring spacers. It says it will lift it another 2-3 inches. Can anyone show me a pic of what this would look like on 33's or alternatively, give me any idea of how it will look? Supposed to go pick them up saturday so ANSWER QUICK!

Don't put spacers on a 4" lift or you will have lots of problems. You really need to research this out more or you will have an unsafe Jeep.

If you have a 4" lift and 33's why do you need more lift?

You are causing a lot of problems if you do this... DON'T!!! Plus it will look ridiculous... 7" of lift with 33's.

You haven't thought this through... or done any research on what you are proposing... if you had... you would not have posted this question.

I was confused. I've seen some things that say its okay, some that don't. I have a buddy that said that adding them wont really cause a problem. I'm 17 :P and new to the whole lift and requirement stuff

Whoever told you it wont cause any problems is ignorant at best. Save the 60 bucks and buy something you actually need for the jeep. As long as you have a complete lift, then you should be good on that end

Anyone who adds spacers to a 4" lift deserves to have their jeep taken away.

That's my $0.02

You would also need at least $2000-5000 for a long arm lift, longer drive shaft, T-case lowering kit, new sway bar links, adjustable track bars, etc. The only jeeps that have 7" lifts are street queens with well over $10,000 invested in aftermarket parts. Imagine something like this, but with tires the size of his wheels.

Bottom line...lifting a vehicle is a lot more complicated than just tossing hockey pucks under springs and the higher you go the more complex and expensive.

Think about it...as you go up, all the geometry changes.
