2.5 inch spacer lift?

I'm ordering a 2.5 inch lift this week and I'm wondering if anyone is regretting their spacer lifts?

Its a great way to add bigger tires. Its cheap. You dont gain flex but dont matter if ur not crawling

No regrets at all with my 2.5 Teraflex spacer lift. Some overachievers on the forum will scold and say otherwise.
Been on all type of terrain, been doing a lot of rock out here since moving here to Utah and have not had any problems. As other Jeep prophets had warned, that "spacers will fall out during max articulation".......ain't happened yet.
If you want to keep your stock coils and maintain factory ride, spacers are a great option.
I just bought some 17/59 JKU springs for $69 to see if I can get an extra inch or so of lift with the existing spacers.
Personally I don't have a big bag of money to toss into expensive modifications (wish I did) so I like to go with what works at a reasonable $$.

That's good to hear. I'm most likely getting the teraflex spacer lift. Just got to wait until I get paid on Friday

That's cool. You may not get as much flex on some obstacles as you would with aftermarket coils, but so far I've kept up with Rubicons and more modified rigs than mine and have certainly held my own. I gotta still use mine as a daily driver, and commute 50 mi each way to work.
Good luck. Good thing is that u can always sell the spacers and go to coils if u change your mind later on.
