Spring spacers

I currently have a 4 inch lift on my 02 wrangler, can I put a 2 inch spacer on top of that w/o any other modifications?

Why. What are you looking to do? 6 inches is a lot of lift that requires other mods usually. You have no profile so no one can see anything of what you have going. Start with that.

You need longer and adjustable control arms to correct the angles of everything, a SYE/CV drive shaft, and longer shocks at minimum.

Unless you already have these things.

Sorry for the lack of info, I am new to the wf and only recently hav I become a jeep owner. This is what I kno about my jeep. 2002 wrangler x with a 4 in lift, pro comp shocks and steering stabilizer. Stock axels with 4:56 gears, 5 spd trans and 33/12.50-15 tires. Also I hav disconectable sway bar links. I also hav some aftermarket engine mods. Anyway I was just after a little more clearance around the fender wells for looks only. I hav wide fender flares and the tires jus seem close for my opinion.

A 4" lift with 33's should be perfect. It's what I've got and have had zero rubbing problems.

No rubbing problems just after a different look.

If you are looking at a body lift for the extra clearance be aware that there will be a lot of adjustments and can cause issues with your 4x4 sticking, slipping, or not going in at all. If you are doing it for looks, save your money, get good parts and do it for functionality. You'll hate your jeep if you don't do the mods properly. And Lord knows no one should hate their jeep! :-)
