Ok. So rear bilstein hd offers 3/8 inch lift. What is stock rake? I thought .5ish inches. So maybe .75 would probably be closer, but not enough of a mod. I guess 1.5 or 2 inch sounds more attractive to me, so just need to find appropriate rear spacers. Thanks for the help Kolak, do you mind pming me a quote for front struts? Thanks.

Installed my new AEV center caps, and measured the current wheel well spacing.


Here is the current rear wheel well spacing:


And the rear:


I may give the front 1.5" lift a try initially, then make rear adjustments as necessary.

As for the lift itself - I can only speak on the Rough Country lift but I have had no issues whatsoever. The front does ride a little higher than the back. I'd say it's more like 1.5" lift in the back and 2.5" lift in the front. Here is my ride on 265/70/17 BFG TA KOs. You can see how the front sits higher...


I put in the Terra Flex 2" spacer lift by myself. A relaxing weekend project! My Jeep seems to sit much the same as stock except a good 2" higher. I like it being a little higher at the back because I load up with stuff and tow a trailer sometimes. MY Bridgestone 255 70 18s are rubbing a bit at full lock on the sway bar and the frame and I don't want to mess with the pinch weld and wheel spacers. I just bent in the sharp edge of the lower inside fender where it was rubbing a bit at full lock so it wouldn't nibble at the tire and the little bit of rubbing I still have I can live with. The Bridgstones are 32" in diameter so I get over an inch more ground clearance with them.

Diesel Ecotune-DPF, 32" tires, 2" lift. 4xGuard bib, tow hooks

I can only speak for the Daystar lift on my Commander, I've been very happy with it, aI suspect poly does make a difference in terms of ride quality.
