Of coarse a spacer lift is cheaper. Some kits include more parts. Range $100-$200
Same with coil lifts though. You are getting brand new coils but depending on the lift height and what it includes determines the cost.
$500 for a basic lift to over $3000 for a long arm.

Installation time depends on what is going in. I could throw in coil spacers in a few hours. Coil lifts usually include more parts and require more time to install.

Nothing wrong with a spacer lift if the jeep in mostly a DD. ride is the same but you lose articulation/flex off road.

It ll depends on what your budget is and plans for the jeep.
Remember, the higher you lift the more issues you can run in to. Also cost more money to do it correctly.

Well, a coil lift is just that, new longer coils.
A spacer lift or a budget boost are polyurethane/metal blocks that go right on top of the stock coil to give you the lift.
People also use spacers to lift just the front or back to level the jeep.

Need a hand ?

Have tools/ space if you don't

Coil or spacer lift? LCA's may not be needed at 2"
Depending on the lift, some do a relo bracket for the rear TB.
I still think a front adjustable is a good idea.
