want to go bigger!
i have a 3 in rough country lift on my cherokee right now and want to go bigger.. was thinking about getting shackles and spacers and piecing it together. you guys think it would be cheaper to do that or just save up and buy another lift
Like others asked, bigger for more lift or for bigger tires? For bigger tires if you don't mind cutting and welding I vote to cut it. I did on mine. And can clear 38s on 5.5in currently on 36s.
current 99xj (5.5 on 36s)
past 98 xj (4.5 on 33s)sold 95 zj (stocker)sold

92 XJ 3.5" lift, trimmed fenders, cut & folded lower quarters, 34x10.50 Swampers, JCR Stage 1 front bumper, Stage 2 rear bumper, lots of Herculiner
For Sale:v8 zj draglink, leather rear seats from 95 zj
You don't need more lift height to achieve better flex.

Even if you are doing very mild wheeling and not carrying loads of weight you'll still be ok. But if you want to perform better on the trail, I'd build your rig for your specific type of wheeling and use quality parts. Sometimes lower is better. Sometimes not.
