Thats exactly what I did I started with a 4.slow because I heard such good things about it. Then my sis came home with her newly purchased 00 WJ with the 4.7. I traded in my 4.slow about three weeks after I drove the 4.7

I believe you are instructed to retorque the spacers every 3000 miles.

Not a bad idea. I sold my 93 4.slow and bought a 98 5.9 two years ago. I love the extra HP and Torque.

They shouldn't ever come loose if torqued properly...basically I would check them 100 miles after installation, then everytime the tires are rotates just check them, don't pull them off or anything.

Thats what I meant, check the torque, not retorque.
Thanks Arlo.

Ok now what do you think about a 2" Budget Boost lift? Would that still be ok for towing?
