Let me run this by the experts...

So I put 4 door rubicon springs and shocks on my 2 door (2013) and got a net of 1" lift front and rear.

If I now put on a 1" spacer lift front and rear I will have a total of 2" lift. But because part of that is a spring lift I probably will NOT need spring retainer clips, bump stops, or shock extensions (because shocks match springs and 1" more from spacer won't move the comfort zone much).

What I WILL need though is brake line brackets and longer rear links.

Agree? If not, what would you do?

The goal is to run 315/70/17 duratrac tires. My flares are already cut.

Eventually, when I have the funds saved, I'm going with metalcloak game changer, new drives shafts, prorock, etc... But for the short time I'm doing this "budget lift" to get me going.

Brake lines will fie even at 2.5". Rear sway bar links are fine. You might want longer fronts depending on the angle.

Thanks daggo! Forgot to mention I already have the front links (adjustable quick discos).

Do you think shock extensions would be needed at all? What about bump stops?

It depends on how much down travel you want, which will be limited by the length of the shocks.

You will also need to adjust the drag link to straighten the steering wheel.
Brake lines and shocks will be fine. I have 2" coils in mine without any issues.

If you only got 1" out of the stiffer springs, I doubt you'll need to do anything. On my first Jeep I did this to, I netted almost 2" up front and it didn't need a thing.

Thanks guys. I'll pop in the 1" spacers (when they arrive) and then see how it goes.

Sounds like I really won't need to do anything other than make sure it does indeed have enough slack on the lines and that the wheel is still centered.

I will check it a full flex because there is a good chance that will happen while I'm off roading.
