Budget wise, I dont want to spring for the whole kit with shocks etc unless absolutely necessary. Buuuuutttt I'm also wondering if upgraded shocks, springs would be considered a necessity since I very occasionally tow larger loads?
This is my DD, She's not going to be a rock crawler though there will be some occasional light trail action. I just don't want to be full of regret the next time I hook up to that trailer.

On a side note, theres another lift option being sold locally if anyone is interested. Im sure with a little modification one could rock this on a jeep no?
Must be good on gas

SilverSport Spacers have no effect on the suspension or ride so towing with the BB installed shouldn't make the rear squat anymore than towing the same load without the BB installed.

Yessir, 3.73 gears and max tow package. I know I'm going to get real familiar with 5th gear when towing with the 35s
