i've never seen 3" spacers before, from what people have said, they're not favored much either. 2" and under is the usual height you'd see and seems to do wonders on a stock tj. I had a set earlier this summer and loved them, i had skyjacker shocks though not pro craps. i wouldn't do it, consensus about pro comp is that they're rough and don't perform at all for the money. ealier this summer i bought new skyjackers off ebay for $120 then spent $40 for some barely used 2" spacers. thats all ya need. no new bumpstops or bolts.

3" is too tall for a spacer, avoid it. Especially since such a taller spacer can cause the springs to fail sooner.

I just found this amusing . . . a Skyjacker fan calling Pro Comp crap . . . that's awesome . . . don't get me wrong I agree with you about Pro Crap, but come on . . . Skyjacker!!!

Come on man . . . it's all in fun . . . I'm just giving you $hit . . . at the end of the day there's only a couple of companies that actually produce the shocks that most of us have and most the different companies more or less slap their sticker on them. With a kit like this, you'll see a minimal difference between Procomp, Rough Country, SkyJacker, etc.

The BS extensions are missing nd with 3" you´ll need a TC drop.
