Need some help

K got a 04 rubicon with a four inch short arm kit with a 1.5 in body lift. The suspension lift came with spacers for the trans and transfer plate. I'm tryin to get more clearance I was need help figurin it out. Can I just take out my spacers and it will b good or does it entail more than that.

What you're talking about is a Tummy Tuck, Belly up... You're looking at a high clearance skid plate, assuming you don't want to use stock skid. You may need adj control arms, new drive shaft... If you search the build and/or tech forum for TT, Belly up etc you'll get a lot of good information both best and worst case. Some high clearance skids also "strongly suggest" a MML too.

Yes I am looking at the tummy tuck setup. But I didn't know if I could use my stock skid plate and just remove the spacers. I do have front lower adjustable control arms I plan on getting the rest this spring so it's all fully adjustable.

Tummy tuck replaces the stock skid. It is the rear upper control arms that will need to be adjustable.

No it is a Rubicon. You will need rear upper adjustable control arms and there are possibly other issues you will run into. Check this out:

There was no link there but I have learned that I would need a cv rear drive shaft with the double cardan and the rear adjustable control arms as well as the mml. Looking right at a grand for all of it

You can get those parts for less than a grand. Looks like $700 will do it.

Sound like he's talking about the TC spacer, not a full tuck.
