Few questions

Started modding the SE a little earlier than expected and best of all its all dirt cheap. I installed the stock tow hooks and put a newer bumper with stock tow hooks on tonight. I have Rubicon rocker guards ready to go on tomorrow or wed. I've also got a set of never used Rugged Ridge flares and Rubicon springs and shocks with 10,000 miles. All this stuff is free.

1. Any one have problems or recommendations about wheel spacers?...Best companies, where to buy, durability issues?

2. Will the stock (to 06') Rubicon rocker guards hold up to a hi lift? They seem like eh quality, and I'll install them for a little extra protection and look for now but would like to know.

3. Does the Rubicon suspension differ from my suspension in anyway other than the obvious fact that the front springs are made to accommodate a 6 banger. And will it ride better due to different quality? or worse cause its for a 6 cyl.? I was more on the path of a Rusty's 2" suspension lift, however, if the Rubicon suspension offers anything, I can save some money to invest in other things as my wheeling this summer will be sand only.

All opinions, criticism and comments welcomed openly and thanks in advance.

spidertrax wheel spacers are the best in quality.. i had some junkie ones, 100 for all four.. and they werent too bad.. spidertrax are like 100 for 2.. so itd be cheaper just to get some steelies..

the rubi suspension is the same except the springs are a little stiffer.. i think they lift your jeep like .25 of an inch depending on how much they sag..

while you have the coils out and replacing them with rubi springs.. id look for a cheep budget boost for your jeep.. i got just the 1'' pucks, 4 for 30 bucks off ebay
