DevilDogDoc So are you trying to do fit 35's? The lift isn't limiting the wheeling that you do, you are.

CarolinaBound Can always put on a 1.25" BL and keep the spacers. And if you have any front end sag 3" lift springs or V8 zj front coils

At 4 inches you are getting into SYE's, adj CA's etc and cheap just went away...... What size tire you gonna run?
i have 33x12.5's on now. I take it out maybe once or twice a month , nothing serious (dont want to push it with my lift). What do you suggest ? Still leaning towards the cheapER option..

haha im aiming to get somewhere from 3.5" to 4.5"(no more than 2" body or spacer) in the cheapest way possible. To avoid more spending, i figured i could find a way to incorperate my 2" spacer lift thats on now

ob269 Yes it is possible, there are plenty of guys running the same setup. Just get shocks that are for 4-6" lift

Is it possible to combine a 2" body lift with a 2.5" suspension lift?

Currently I have a Skyjacker 2" spacer lift on my 2005 TJ. Ive been looking at Rough country's 2.5" Progressive Spring Susp. lift (Jeep TJ Suspension Lift Kit) and I was curious if i could combine the two.

Would I need to include the shocks when i purchase the 2.5" progressive lift , or would the shocks from my current 2" spacer lift work? Also, would i need to include a TC lowering kit ?
