Cool Coil Spacers and Body Lift?

Hello, I am running a 99 tj sport I6. I just wanted some feedback on the following idea. Want to lift the jeep 3" to 4" without significant stock alteration.
Will be using teraflex 2" coil spacers as well as a 2" or 1" body lift. Should I only do 1" body lift? I have heard once you hit 4" problems occur. Im only looking to fit 33x10.50xR15s on my stock 15x7s( will be using wheels spacers), with enough room for play. Any feedback is appreciated.

you will have plenty of room to fit some 33's i ran a 2"bb and 2" body for about 2 years and it was great but i had 32s wish i had 33s. but now i added some 2.5" springs so im running 6.5" and 35s and with the wheel spacers make sure you torque them properly. and what you read about going 4" and having problems is not true for 90% of the people its not a big deal 4" lift with a tc drop boom your golden some of us are on a budget and people dont get that. but technically your only going for a 2" suspension so there's no problem in that what so ever your not going to kink anything and your drive shaft will be fine. first 2 pix are pix with a 2"bb, 2" body with 32's second 2 are 6.5" and 35s (current)

A lot of guys frown on any BL over 1.25". I dont have any experience with any BL except my 1.25, so I wont stand behind it, but thats what I have heard. Something about excessive torque on the bolts, but again, not 1st hand experience.

2-2.5" suspension lift (or spacers) with 1 or 2" BL will be sufficent for 33s no problem.

You will not be able to run 12.50 tires on a 7" rim anyway. Why not just pick up some 8" wide soft 8s with 4" BS and you will be good to go. Not much difference in cost over the spacers and certainly a safer better way to go i think.
