The extra weight of that hard top and full doors is going to make a difference. I have Currie progressive rate 4" springs in the rear and run 35" on 15x10's and have plenty of room

Attachment 176058

This is with 33's on 15x8's and it looks silly to me..

Get some progressive rate rear springs...the Currie ones were less under $200.

Are 2 inch coil spacers a bad idea?

Yes, bad idea..you're gonna have all kinds of issues come up at 6" of lift. You'll need adjustable control arms, SYE/ double cardan, prob have to notch skid plate...your opening a can of worms. The progressive rate springs is the way to go. IMO

This is a worn out 4" RC spring that came on my jeep. Next to it is the Currie 4" progressive rate spring. Notice not only how the RC spring is sagged, but notice the difference is the spring design. The tighter coil wrap will support the extra weight you're carrying

The Currie progressive springs were less than $100 per spring.

Get an angle finder or a bubble level. Put it on your front fender, floorboard or wherever. That way you can tell if you're level or not. If your rear is lower than the front.....fenders ain't gonna fix it. You'll wind up with more tire clearance and a backwards leaning rig.
