That four foot lift is going to look kind of goofy IMHO.
Why the 2" spacers with a 4" long arm lift kit? Once you have the long arms, the cost between springs is minimal.
Go over to the WJ section and read the various lift threads.
What brand lift kit are you going for?

hmmmm Rough Country...
I have ran their stuff, and it is junk.
I have removed their lift kits from vehicles and replaced with quality springs etc. more than once.
I wouldn't put too much stress on the long arms myself, but thats just me.
Any way you could wait and get a IRO or Clayton kit? Be better off in the long run.
Either way, why is 4" not a big enough lift kit? I would go for the 4" and some trimming. What tires are you wanting to run? Regearing the differentials for those tires? Upgrading the differentials? Steering? Brakes? See what I mean?
