Lifting shackles?

Question.

A. What are opinions on 2 inch lifting shackles?

B. Would I need to upgrade shocks? Or, do I have enough play left in them to travel.

C. My 31x10.50x15 do not rub; however, it sounds like they will when I start out on the trails.

Suggestions? Thanks.

Look into a 2.5 lift kit. Shackles a poor way to get clearance. It may be ill mannered on the road and trail.

Go with a 1 inch and 1 in bl imo. I think staying away from anything over a 1 in either of those categories is unwise. Just my cents. Your shocks should be fine FYI

Are you talking about one of the rugged ridge deals? Leak packs and shocks? What is a good inexpensive brand to go for?

Thanks.

The RC lift is the same cost for a 2.5 or a 4......decisions decisions.
