tough decision

I am about to purchase a new lift most likely the 4" rough country and i cant decide if i want to go with 33's or 35's there is only going to be a 70 dollar difference in the set of tires so i am thinking go big. Also if i need more clearance i can put my 2" spacers in with the lift although i haven't seen where anyone has put spring spacer on with a suspension lift everybody seems to do body lifts is there a reason why?

Putting the spacers in would be like having a 6" lift. That's a lot for the control arms to flex like that just do the lift and 1" body.

i wont say it will never be all the way flexed but it isnt going to be heavily off roaded just casual off roading till it is paid off so the control should be ok plus i hope to put a long arm kit on it in a few years.

You will hate that setup. Adding spacers to a 4" lift will make your shocks a couple inches too short. Also, your jeep will ride like a pogo stick at those control arm angles and lengths.
