So I found out in Moab that the offset of my wheels pulled out the lips of my rear fenders, so I ordered a rear 2" bb,I want it to be level so I'm thinking about 2.5" springs in front as we'll give me ideas concerns feedback parts list of what I might need

Hooked up the dub with a 2" budget boost with some poly spacers

Install was pretty straight forward. Took is about 1.5 start to finish

We started by removing tires, shocks, and sway bar.

Then we dropped the axle as low as possible and jacked up the other side enough for is to pull out the coil. After the coil was out we pull out the rubber spring retainer and put in the spacer and reinstall the rubber retainer

Put the Coil back in and reseat it, and reinstall everything else.

All finished up

And of course we had to go test it out!!

We'll got some bad news, after installing the lift did a shake down everything went well. Headed home and all of a sudden the jeep lost power started smelling fuel,big manifold leak limped in couple miles and just died at a stop would not start, checked the battery it was dead recharged it all good alternator was good as we'll put a jump box on it started but barely huge manifold exhaust leak idled ruff then wouldn't start back up. So tis weekend going to do a compression test and go from there. Any ideas of what's up?
