Jspec 2.5 Lift without Exhaust Spacer on 13 JKU

Has anyone installed the Jspec 2.5 on a JKU without the exhaust spacer?

I'm having my lift installed next week and I am having second thoughts that I should have ordered the spacer.
I tried doing a search, but it seems that there's mixed reviews, but I also couldn't find anybody commenting on the Jspec with the Fox 2.0 shocks.

you can get the jks spacers from amazon prime and have them in 2 days or even next day for a few dollars. They are easy to install. Also if you are not going to go offroad and really flex it out you wont need a spacer anyway.

if the shocks that come with the jks kit are the 25.15 extended length shocks (or longer) you will rub the exhaust under flex when disconnected, this is not a maybe, it is a for sure. if you plan to wheel ever at all do the spacer before you disconnect or you will end up melting the boot on the driveshaft. you can install the boot after the lift is done if you don't have it on your planned install date.

I think the Fox front shock has amax travel of around 26".

I doubt I'll ever be rock crawling, but I do want to hit some trails this summer and the price is the same whether or not he is putting on the spacer or not. I guess I was just cheaping out.
This jeep has become addictive...

I stopped by the installers place today and he told me that he stocks the spacers, so I'm going to add it.

Thanks for the replies, I'll add some pics when it's all said and done
