2.5 inch lift and towing ?
 
Ok , so I have my 2.5 inch lift narrowed down to the terraflex BB 1355210
, no springs, no shocks.
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?

Does your Jeep already have the factory tow package?

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

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.
