What do you guys think?

I have a 98 tj with 4 inches of total lift (2 inch spacers and 2 inch body) i run 35's on it just fine. I have a 4 cylinder but its regeared so it still has some decent power. I was looking to put a suspension lift on it. what are your thoughts on putting a 2.5-4" suspension lift on top of the other 4 inches?

6-8" is a bit much for just 35's! I'd take out the spacers and find a nice ~3" lift personally. Unless you just want to look tall, won't help you any off road - might hurt tho!

why don't you remove the spacers and just install a real 4" lift? then your suspension will actually be more useful off road

ya i would take the spacers out. especially 2" body lift looks ugly and that can roll over easily. but thats my opinion. i would go witha 3-4" real lift. /\ what they say
