I have a 2005 jeep wrangler unlimited. Its got a 2.5 inch lift already but I want it higher. If I buy 2 inch coil spring spacers will I have to buy anything else or can I buy the spacers and put them on as the jeep stands?
Are you going to remove the old 2.5 inch lift? Or are you wanting a total of 4.5 inches of lift? If that's the case you'll need a lot more... Changes to your driveline angle mean an SYE and CV driveshaft, adjustable control arms to change pinion, new shocks, longer brakelines, new track bars, possibly new track bar brackets. I'm sure I'm forgetting things.
If you're looking at just swapping out the old 2.5 inch lift for a 2 inch you'll be just fine. If you're looking to add 2 inches... There's going to be a significant investment.
Ok so if I just lift it 4.5 inches and leave the tires that are on it "31.5" will it be reliable? I dont want to lift it anymore if it wont be reliable
that depends if you are using quality parts or not. to do a 4" or higher lift, you'll need a sye and cv driveshaft, new control arms, and front and rear track bars, longer sway bar links, longer brake lines, new shocks, etc
just throwing some pucks on top of the springs isnt going to do it
Well I get off pavement everychance I get rock crawl, mudding, trails, creeks etc. Nothing is wrong with it I would just like it taller. Im an avid adventurer I love being outside and my jeep takes me where ever just want it a little taller
OME is a high quality lift. Honestly, don't think you should mess with it. Look at doing some body lift and belly up. You will clear 33's and be a very capable vehicle. Look at Unlimited04 build. He runs that lift and belly up and is one of the best vehicles I've ever seen. Looking to do something like that to my LJ.
37's is a money pit of a jeep. On a budget, 37's is not recommended.

you could do a 1.25" body lift and throw some 33's on it. you could also look into a tummy tuck, but that requires more work. its not necessarily getting the top of the jeep up higher, its getting the bottom of the jeep higher that is truly important
