3.5 inch IRO lift with 1 inch spacers?

Just got a 94' ZJ and I am buying a IRO 3.5 ich lift ( http://www.ironrockoffroad.com/Merch..._Code=IR-Z_3LK ).
I'm looking to get another inch of clearnce without going to a long arm or 4.5 inch lift (on a budget).
ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Just buy the 4.5" kit. It comes with everything you will need in the first place. If you buy the 3.5" and then add spacers you will have to buy a lot of items extra that come in the 4.5" kit. You can't lift cheaply.

If you are on a budget, just do the 3.5 inch. When you do anything bigger on a budget, it doesn't work.

Yes, you can add the Bb and get 4.5. However, for a better ride quality, save and get the 4.5 kit. Take a look at Rubicon Express as well.

Would be stoked with an express long arm but it's too much for a high school student building a weekend warrior. Thanks I guess I'll just spend the extra for the 4.5.

The 4.5 longarm kits are good (I could never afford those kits) but, I ran 4.5 on short arms for three or four years. Notice I didn't say stock control arms.

What's the difference between the stock and short arms?

Short arms are adjustable or already fixed adjusted to the size needed. Stock, are well.. stock.
