1997 Jeep Wrangler Lift

I had posted a thread a while back about a three inch body and was strongly suggested not to do that so I figured that wasn't a good idea. I'm trying to get a couple more inches of lift. I now have a 4 inch RC suspension and a 1.25" RC body lift. I was wondering if a 2" coil spacer kit would be considerable...or if anyone has any other suggestions I would appreciate it.

JEEZUS!!! How high are you trying to be? Not sure on the exacts but you cant be too far from throwing you center of gravity off. do you wheel a lot and need the clearance or just like being high? not but tall?

Suddenly my 4" RC suspension lift seems inadequate.

Post pics on your profile, or I am calling BS.

You are already sitting tall, plus the 35s. Its your ride, but its gonna be a rough one.

I love em high, don't get me wrong. When I got my girl, she looked huge to me. Now I look at her, and she feels stock. (no changes except looks normal to me now)

I have floated the idea through my mind of going higher, and going back to 35s. But I think I would compromise the fun but still safe ride of my DD.

If you do it, post pics!!!!! Heck, post some anyway on your profile!

If you really want it to be higher I would invest the money into a new lift kit. I also have a 4 in RC and I hate it. I am going to ditch it as soon as I can and get a Rubicon Express 4.5 kit. They also have them in 5.5. Fabtech makes an 8 inch long arm kit, which Im sure is nice, but itll cost you about 3800 for normal shocks and about 5000 for coil overs. I think you would hate the ride if you went any other direction than a larger kit.
