Coil Spacers for ZJ

I am interested in putting a 2" coil lift on a ZJ. I don't know too much about them, will they hold up for a long time? Are they easy to install? Any brands in particular I should buy? I just ordered 245 70 16 BFGoodrich AT/KO's to fill up the wheel wells. Thanks in advance!

I think the spacers are great. I run them on both of my Jeeps. But I would recomend extended bump stops for the rear to help hold the spacers on. Without extended bumpstops it is almost certain that the spaces will pop out. They usually do not pop all the way out but they tend to lean toward one side of the spring which is not good. The front does not need extended bump stops.

I've got some 2" coil spacers that I had on for about 10 days. I ended up taking them back out when I gave the ZJ to my daughter.

They look brand new. PM me if your interested in them.

Yep,

you'll start there and things turn bad quickly. You'll start parking next to smaller jeeps until someone with a lift parks next to you and then the mod fever sets in.

HAHA!! That is such a true statement! I already have a slight case of mod-fever (if you read my sig). I just ordered 245-70-16 BFG AT/KO I think it will look great with a 2" lift. Those tires should fill up the wells pretty well, well anyway hope all is well in the Jeepforum Wow I'll stop now! Keep 'em comin' boys! It sounds like everyone likes the spacers...can't wait to put those bad boys on! Thanks for the replies!

Hey just was reading what was on yout rig in your sig. You NEED to ditch that Jet chip. The 5.9L's ECM already is an advanced timing computer, the piggy back chips are only bad news in the long run. and for the rest of the ZJ'ers mopar makes a performance computer for the 5.2 and i think for the 4.0, the jet chips will skrew up yout computer and engine

Finally someone else who understands that the aftermarket PROMs are just a waste of time and money.

Hey, I am going to remove it like you suggest. I gained NO performance from the crap chip. I agree that it can't be good. How about the mopar performance ecu? I have heard they do a lot fo the performance of the 5.2 and 5.9.

Anyone interested in Buying a Jet Chip?!

Back to the spacers, what do ya'll think about them should I do it?? thanks!

You mean to tell me that the spacers aren't in yet? Come on...

Take some pics afterwards and post them. If you want to help others who might have the same idea. Post your pics over at www.nagca.com and there is a wealth of info on that website.

I have the Mopar Performance computer.
