Maybe a dumb Lift question?
 
This may or may not have been covered before but I did a search and didn't see it. I have a Mopar 3in lift w/ the fox shocks and after all is said and done I really want another inch ( I should have went 4) What are my options?

you could put 1" spacers on top of your current coils. You'll start to run into other issues, but the spacers will give you that extra inch you want.

Why not do a 1.25" body lift. That's
what I'm doing next week??

mainly your driveshafts. looks like you have an unlimited, so your front will likely be the first to go (when it goes). may not happen immediately, and it'll warn you before it fails; it'll spit grease from the boot, that's when it's heading for driveshaft heaven. Just something to be aware of for the future :)

Hmm good to know. I considered a body lift I was just making sure what my other options were if any. I knew in the back of my mind 3 in would not be enough and 3 months later here I am... Thx

.75"-1" spacers AND 1"-1.25" body lift

Don't do the spacer. I did it on a 2" lift and it road like crap afterwards. Not to mention you could get into drive shaft issue once going to a 4" lift. Some people do and some don't it is a borderline issue with a JKU at 4".

I would do the body lift but don't do more then 1", 1.25 at most. They look weird on a JK over an inch.

What do you want the 1" for? Are you rubbing, tire clearance, need bigger tires?

It's not really a rubbing issue just wanting a little more fenderwell space

Seems like that's what it's looking like is a body lift. I do not want to affect my ride any worse it actually isn't bad now.

The the best option would be go with flat fenders or do a flat fender trim on your factory fenders
