I need more lift!

Alright, Ill give you the specs I have a 04 tj sport with 3.25'' RC suspension combo kit. Breaking that down it has 2.5'' coils with .75'' spacers to make that 3.25''. I am running 33'' tires of course. The only thing that I have put on with that to get rid of vibes is a T-case drop. It runs great and i am happy with it for now. My question is, what if I wanna have around 4'' (maybe a bit more?) total and still keep that RC lift on but just add to it. So, i would have to take that .75'' spacer off (tp aviod stacking) and put 1.5''-2'' BL? I would need an adjustable track bar front and rear? CV driveshaft with SYE kit? more t-case drop? adj. control arms? seems like its gonna be expensive? haha sorry lots of questions...thanks!

Don't forget about longer shocks. If you do a SYE kit with a CV driveline, you won't need to drop the t-case. IMHO. If you want more lift, take everything off you have on now. Sell it on eBay. And go with a RE 5.5 long arm kit. This will be the last kit you will ever need.

Well i definitely cant sell this setup because i got it a few months ago for a birthday present and i am happy with it i just may want to add a 1'' body lift like stmcelroy is saying. But what i was thinking is that i would want to avoid stacking the spacers right? cause my setup has a .75'' spacer already on it. So, would i need to take that off and by a 2'' body? what about bumpstops? and lets say that i did do the 2'' body lift, would i need longer shocks or could i keep the ones i have?

If you ONLY add a body lift you will not need to mess with your other suspension parts. Nada nothing. Look for a body lift that replaces the stock body mounts vs. one that stacks on top of them. Figure about 2 hrs to install the body lift.

ok, i will look for a BL that replaces the stock. what about the driveline...can i drop the t-case a bit more with some washers instead of paying big money for a CV driveshaft or a SYE kit to have a better drive angle to eliminate the vibes?

Yes, just drop it about an 1" you can make your own out of square stock or buy a drop kit on line. You may need to adj your 4wd shifter once you do that, or when you do the bl as well.

Sorry this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you have any pictures or did you have to add anything extra other than the kit and TC drop kit? I ask this because I want the kit you have but don't want to add anything extra like a sye or a driveshaft.
