So my neighbor has a 2003?? Wrangler Rubicon. Bone stock except for 31" a/ts. Tires are 6 months old so he wants to keep them but would be ok with having space to upgrade to 32s or 33s when time comes while still looking ok for now with his 31s. He comments on my jeep every time he sees me and is very interested in buying lifts after so many times of seeing mine. His problem is hes extremely busy and has no time at all for installation of a lift so he is going to pay me to install one for him over a weekend or something. Ive laid out a few options for him as he doesnt want to spend too much so if anyone out there has these lifts or combos, pics would be greatly appreciated so its all in one place for me. Its alot easier to do this than search through google for specific combos, seems that you click on one and its a different lift than you expect or has other options on it that vary results.

Heres the list:
Zone 3 inch lift
Zone 4.25 combo
Any 2 inch spacer lift
And a 2 inch spacer kit along with jks 1.25 bl (really would like pic of this as it seems its the most bang for the buck and is very simple and wont affect steering or driveline)

Thanks in advance guys

I ran coil spacers and a body lift on my Rubicon. I fit 285s no problem and had no vibes. Make sure the owner is prepared for axles that are no longer centered unless he buys a rear track bar bracket and you redrill the front track bar bolt hole. Are you prepared to deal with the owner's complaints when he all of a sudden has death wobble after the install? You might want to CYA.

With spacers and bl the track bars are still fine in stock position i thought? I used to run spacers on mine with stock trackbars and just installed spacers on a friends with everything stock and no issues

Track bars are still functionally fine. If the owner is detail oriented he may freak out because the axles shifted and are no longer centered. I'm trying to help you prepare the owner for what to expect.

I never adjusted the track bars on my Rubicon because I didnt care about the offset axles.

Its minimal. Maybe 3/4". Normal people would not be concerned
