no experience with it, but its just a 3" spacer lift, new shocks might be needed as well.

huh? not go over a 1" coil spacer? 2" is fine.. 3 is a bit much..and springs at that lift size would work better of course. As for spacers, I had 4.5" springs with 2" spacer....

I can understand if its a BL, but for spacers, i dont understand. 2" is the usual BB, 3" i could understand longer grade 8 bolts for the bump stops, otherwise i dont really see any problem.

well over inch in a half can cause problems with shifting trans and transfer case.. brake lines are going to be real tight during articulation.. plus the stress on the bolts..

I have a 2" spacer lift and no probs of any kind. But if you have been bit by the mod bug then save your money and get the big lift you will end up buying later anyway.
You will say that you dont plan on lifting it any more then that but give it a month or two after you get the spacers and you will be shopping for a full lift kit.
The jeep mod bug is like AIDS. Once you get it. You cant get rid of it.
If you have a wife or girlfriend. Get her into jeeps or there will be problems in the future...Lots of single jeep owners...lol

I'm just using a 2" bb for right now with 33x12.50 tires. i have no problems with it. probably wouldn't work too well if i went 4-wheeling but on the road it works.

I think you have spacer lift and body lift confused with each other.The spacer lift has no effect on the shifter linkage what so ever and What bolts?????

All's fine by me! If you do a t-case drop to correct some drive line angles, then i could see how it would affect the shifter linkages a bit though.
