2" lift and spacer add on.
 
I was wondering if got the 2" coil lift from rustys and if later in time when need for of a lift can just spacers will that work out.

i think you might actually need new shocks though.

jeepguy, yeah you can do that. 4jeepn runs spacers on his 4.5" RE lift.

if you just go with a modest spacer like a 1" spacer then the shocks won't be a problem. your travel may be reduced slightly but not enough to where the shocks would be a problem.

I used to have a 2" REBB and swapped it for a Rusty's 2" and love it! I picked it up from a friend, but if you're buying new, there's only a $50 difference. I checked with my local shop about adding spacers because I want to add a winch and they told me that a 1" spacer wouldn't be a problem.

Awsome thanx alot, but there is only one thing every 4x4 shop i go to they keep telling me to not go with the rustys kit but go for like lets a rubicon express or full traction.

they are probably biased towards RE and FT because thats all they run. i doubt they have any experience with running rustys but trust me, its a great setup.

Why bother with a local 4x4 shop? Just order your parts online and do the work yourself. It's real simple. Here's a detailed write up with pictures and instructions to help. Read through it and see if you can't save yourself some money by doing it youself.:D
