Looking at the 2" Fatbobs lift. By what I see on the FAQ I would need spacers. Looking to run 265/75/16 with a 2" lift assuming I would need 1.5" spacers. Not too familiar with spacers. What are good brands to go with? Looking to run General Grabber AT2's, so just basic AT tire, not really much of any offroading. What else would I need to change up to make them clear? Looking to use my stock 16" wheels

If you're going to run spacers I'd recomment spidertrax. As well as using loctite. Fatbobs is just a coil spring spacee correct?

Springs and shocks. trying to avoid using spacers. One of the guys on here actually recommended the Fat bobs lift. More then likely I will get bored being at 2" after a year and upgrade to a 4" lift anyways.

Spidertrax 1.5" spacers with loctite are a definite for 265-75-r16's. You should avoid them but I don't trust knock-offs when it comes to wheel spacers, after all they are holding your wheels on... If you dont run spacers you will rub your rear shocks pretty hard. You may have to trim your front bumper if you decide to wheel it more, or just let it rub haha. It'll look good!

When bolting the spacers on would the torque specs be the same as the vehicle? bolted a set onto a f150 at work last year but I dont remember what we torqued them to

I'd recommend a 3" lift then and 3/4" spacers. I know I'm biased but I run a ome hd lift with bilsteins with the coil spacers and a 255/75/17 rubicon takeoff. LOVE the setup. Youll definitely want to go bigger with just 2"...most likely anyway.

Okay so its actually a 2.5" lift. 2.5" front and 2" rear. don't think that makes much of a difference.

I have a 2" BB lift from fat bob's. I would highly recommend going 3" with shocks and springs. that's what I wish I would have done in the first place. the 2" BB is cheaper but you will be disappointed that you didn't go 3" springs and shocks so do the 3"

You'd be surprised how much of a difference it is.

Did some searching and actually starting to find some wheels that would work. Hmm $200 on spacers and keep my stock wheels or spring about $500 on a nice set of Pro Comp Alloys with 4.5" BS? Just not sure how they would look on a white WJ, windows are tinted black so that helps a little. Not a fan of chrome. Plus I have seen what salt does to chrome wheels.

Spidertrax spacers say explicitly 90 ft/lbs, i guess over that you could run the risk of cracking the aluminum. I may have done 95 for good measure :thumsup: (I think you would have to go way past 90 for them to crack)

I did the whole bb thing and wheel spacers from rough country running 32s, I really wished I would have went with iro 4" long arms, I love my Wj but I am realizing the limitations of this rig unless you got a lot of money,
