2"spacers already.

Looking to add a little more height to the Tj, I have 2" spacers already in it and was thinking 2.5" inch suspension or maybe even up to 4". If I go suspension lift can I still keep the spacers in it, and if so is there any modifications I would have to do to the drive line mainly? Steering? Any others mods suggested? Just looking to run 33 12.5s but I want to clear them bad boys. 2.5, ax5, 4.88s at the end of next week.

you remove the spacers and return to the stock spring isolators when installing lift coils.

Spacers alone isn't enough to clear 33s. You just haven't noticed that yet.

since I'm on the topic, what would be the effect of leaving the 2" spacers in and putting a 2.5" suspension in with it?
