xj with re 3.5

I'm buying the re 3.5. I'd like to see how it looks and the mods that look good with it. Also what size coil spacer to level it

No spacers sits with a slight rake like from the factory.

re 3.5

I'm ordering the re 3.5 super ride. I have a 98 xj with a 3" RC but the coils wore pre fast. I was wondering since the full leafs are going to be so rough which coil spacer to order to level. The .75 or 1" coil spacer. Pics and ideas please. About to order kit and want to order spacer with kit

I think typically people order .75 coil spacers with that kit. DPG off-road even includes a .75" coil spacer w/ RE 3.5" setup.

But does it really level it up. Do you think a 1" would be too big

I merged your theads since they're pretty much twins.
Every jeep is different. If you want to get it right the first time, do your suspension mods and then chose a spacer to fit the result.
Also, new leaf packs will likely settle some in a few weeks so you might want to wait a bit to make the final call.

Why did you ditch the bushwacker flat flares in favor of the rustys? I have the re 3.5 and I am planning on running 33x10.5s with bushwacker flat flares when my 31s wear out.

they allowed more trimming while sill having fenders, and they provide more armor
