4" Rough Country Lift & a 2" BB Lift questions

Whats up guys. Been awhile since i have been on here. Just had a couple questions about this lift set-up. Right now i am running a 2" BB lift. I have a 2004 GC Laredo. I am looking to get another lift with my tax income check, and i was looking a a 4" lift from rough country. I know its a fairly cheap lift, but i am not going to be wheeling the hell out of my ride. Maybe some mud holes down the road. But nothing tooooo rough. Is it possible to keep the 2" BB lift on and adding the 4" lift from rough country? If so, what size tires could i run, with out rubbing issues?

I also want to know. Im thinking about doing this too. I know you will need longer shocks and prolly adjustable upper control arms. And you can run 33x12.5's

to keep the 2'' BB you will need all adjustable CAs an A-arm space in the rear and an adjustable t-bar, and shocke designed for 6". dont expect the ride to be plesant and you should be able to fit 33"s with minimal trimming.

You will need all the components for a 6" lift, rendering most of what comes with a 4" kit useless to you.

Im thinking about just doing 4 inches and a good amount of trimming and 33x12.5 and if I need a little more in the front I'll get kor .75 inch spacer.

almost no bb is realy 2inch all the way around. they are typicaly 1 3/4in front and 1 1/4inch rear. so on average without stock isolators a bb and a 4inch lift is only 5.5 inches. and if you have the rough country kits the rear springs are only 3.5 in lift for the 4inch lift
