This will give you 2 more inches in the front and 1 inch in the rear.
Yeah I know the spacer kits are cheap, just thought I'd read they weren't that great for offroad use. I figured if I do a kit I'm going to do the new AEV 2.5" kit + the CA bracket. I guess I'm just slightly irritated at trying to find decent off-road tires in the stock size so I don't have fender rub issues. The BFG M/T are another that comes in that size (not the KM2 version) but they're also E rated and $$$$$$$ compared to the Hankooks.

Many, MANY people offroad with spacer kits without issue. You aren't going to get the type of articulation out of stock springs that a new coil lift can bring, but doesn't mean it can't be wheeled.

I'm not trying to persuade you into the spacer kit though. The AEV kit does look nice and is one I might would consider in the future myself. Not a huge fan of the CA brackets though. Would rather just have new adjustable arms personally.
