I can say that will look terrible, plus there is no good reason to run 6" of lift.

Also this is posted in the wrong place.

bahahaha, i have 4.5 in SA lift + 2 in BL and MC overlines. i run 37's, i wouldnt even consider anything smaller then 35s. on a yj go with 33s and a 2.5" SA lift itll look "normal" and handle much better then any 6" combo you may think of.

Ok we'll right now I have a 2in shackle, so should I try to get another 2 inches to have a 4in lift? Also if I get a suspension lift does that add to my shackle or what? I know just about everything about my jeep other than lift wise

Why not go with tube fenders? Prolly cheaper then going the lift option.

I'll be honest I can't help much with yj suspensions

Look up metalcloak.com or aev high line or some of the other options out there.

I ran 33s on stock suspension + Mc arch tubes with no issues in the front and slight rubbing in the rear.

Metal cloak will tell you on sight what's possible with what they have and if you have questions, call Matson he'll answer anything he can.

Your 2" shackle lift only gives you 1" of actual lift . Yes new lift springs will add to the overall lift of your Jeep . 4" springs + 2" shackles = 5" of lift.
