I need opinions on a lift..

I got my 01' TJ last June, stock suspension, 30/35 axles, 2" body lift with 31/10.5/15 tires. Planning on 33's and regear to 4.88. I put a spartan locker in the rear last month (love it so far). I can't decide on what lift to go with. Thought about RC or Zone 4" kit. But then I think the money might be spent better on 2.5" springs/shocks (OME maybe) and flatten the belly raise the tank. 2" of BL should allow to tuc everything up nicely. Don't just want to say "Cool lift on 35's". I would rather have Jeep that is good on the road and be capable in the rocks. This is and will continue to be my DD for a while.

I was thinking of taking my stock TJ to a 2" lift with 31-10.5. I know you're going bigger but did you like that setup?

I saw something about 2" spacers on stock suspension. You think that would work alright. I don't do serious off-roading but like the more aggressive look and the occasional moderate trail.

Just installed my RC 3.5" lift and I'm currently running 31X10.5's... They look a little small but they'll work at least until I get the $$$ to buy 32'sX12.5.

Haven't had the opportunity to trail ride with the new lift, but I plan on taking a short ride tomorrow to see how everything is working. There are several people within our local jeep group that run some kind of RC set up and they're all pretty much satisfied with what they have - this is why I went with RC. You'll find many different opinions regarding lifts on this forum - which is the beauty of it all.

Happy Trails

That'd work fine for what you're planning on doing. Of course, you will get the go bigger bug later on down the road but, that happens to everybody.

I have body lift, not spring spacers...The body lift is fine, but does nothing to effect ride quality or the suspension in any way. strickly gives more clearence for tires
