rough country 2.5" with 2" spacer up front

Ok so i was looking at a thread a while back about the rough country 2.5", it was a picture request but i cant remember exactly what it was for. But there was this guy who posted pics of his gray 2000 TJ with the 2.5" lift on it and said it was very unlevel, so he put a 2" spacer up front to level it out. It looked great after words! My lift is the same way and i have searched and searched and havent been able to find that thread, if anyone knows what thread its in i would greatly appreciate it. Or even better if anyone else has had any problems with there 2.5" lift being unlevel please post. I put the .75 spacer up front, but it still isnt level. I really want to see that TJ that had the 2" spacer up front to see if thats what i want to do, but cant seem to find it anywhere.

you can get other spacer sizes besides 2'...you should be fine with an 1' spacer in the front to make it level.My tj is basically 1' lower in the front than the rear.

i put a .75" up front, but it still didnt level it out. Yours looks really good though, i may have to look into a 1". I would still like to see that one with the 2" if anyone knows where it is. By the way, how do you like your frame less soft top?

you could also remove the factory spring isolator and add a 2 inch spacer, that would make the equivalent of a 1.25 inch spacer....

I'm sure you've looked into this but a just keep in mind a 4.5" lift no matter if it comes from springs or springs + spacers is still 4.5". You are getting into a whole new mess with suspension and steering geometry when you go that high, my TJ didn't drive nearly as well with the lift I had.

RC 2.5 w/ 1.25 spacer.
