TJ Lift Question?

Hey i have a 99 Tj with a 4" Rough Country Lift on 35" Pro Comps. My question is what is the best thing to get a little more clearance? Can i use coil spacers with this lift? If so how big can i go? I can always go with a body lift but i just don't like the way they look. Thanks in advance.

I have a 4" suspension lift and 35's and ran into the same problem... I cut my flares last weekend and it helped quite but they still rub on the inner finderwell so I'm going to install my 1" bl and mml next weekend and hopefully that will be enough for now if not i'll just extend the bump stops

a 1" BL is sometimes a good thing

I have heard that guys really like those JKS ACOS (Ajustable coil over spacer) products.. They have 1 1/4" already built in and I think you can go over 2.5" simply by adjusting them.. They are kinda spendy, but since they are made by JKS, they should be a quality product.

Here is the link: JKS Manufacturing: Coil Spring Suspension

I wouldnt add coil spacers on top of your 4 inch springs with the short control arms that Rough Country provides. Go with a 1.25 body lift. I am running that same exact setup.

^^ Agreed, go with a small BL.
