Spacer lift question

I have a 2" BB already, I'm thinking of putting a 3/4" spacer in the front (to make up for the winch), Will I run into any problems having stock control arms or any thing else? I know really need to save up for a 4" lift, but funds are lacking right now. Any advice is great.

you are gonna stack spacers? i think you can get away without new CA's but your axles will be uncentered and you will most likely need a tcase drop...you may can get by without one if you have a MML.

it will be ok.

the height will be the same as before because of the winch weight.
i have 2" spacers on top of 2.5" OME springs to level out my TJ and everything works fine.
