2inch poly spacers ontop of 4inch lift?

Is it possible to put the 2 inch poly spacers on top of a 4 inch lift by placing them ontop of the coils to get a cheap and easy 6inches of lift? or is that just a really bad idea?

It's a great idea... if you get longer shocks, all new control arms, change the A arm setup in the back, replace your front and rear sway bar links, change your front driveshaft to double cardon u joints, look into modding the rear shaft as well, and basically get rid of every single part for your 4 inch lift and buy a 6 inch lift. But if you're not going to do all that, then no.

2003 WJ in Jeep Green Metallic, 4.0/242/4.10's. 4" Teraflex springs w/ RE monotube shocks and IRO short arms, cheap intake w/ amsoil filter, 2.5" hi flow cat and back exhaust, lots of lights and other misc crap.

If you look at the ZJ/WJ forum stickies there are MANY links to lifts, theory and approaches. The general idea I have gleaned from reading all that was that lifting over 4.5 inches WILL require much more money and parts. Geometry for these vehicles seems to choose the 4.5" as a "magic number", though I am unsure as to whether that applies to the WJ exactly. In short, if you wish to look at lifts over four inches, you will NEED to spend a huge amount to make everything work correctly and SAFELY on and off the trail. There is NO other way around it. Keep your lift shorter and you will avoid lots of headaches and wallet burning.
