Anyways like I said man thats a sick ZJ you have there. Good luck and keep at it, remember you jeep is like the bank, safe reliable place to put all your money. lol
As I was reading your reply I was about to say to take a look at the spice colored Monstaliner, but I see you're headed in the right direction already! I think you will love it!

Not necessarily, there's a lot more to it than that, the biggest contributor is normally shock length. However I agree completely that spacers aren't worth it.

That's true, in not the most educated when it comes to the technicalities of things like that. but yea it makes me feel alot better sitting on just coils then with spacers.

Edit: but after all the armor/bumpers I want get put on I may have to run a small spacer to compensate for the weight.

Just get stiffer springs, they sag less and can handle the weight better. Though the ride will be slightly stiffer as well.
