Can I do this? Adding more lift to RC Series II 4" lift. Body lift or coil spacers?
Just purchased rough country series II 4" susp lift, was lookin at a 3" body to go with it. Asked rough cou if I could do 1.75"coil spacer over a body lift and they said u shouldn't, now I talked 2 a guy 2nite and he says he runs a 4"susp w/ 2" coil spacers. Here is what is comin from rough cou:4" susp lift w/ 2.2 shocks, 2" tcase drop. Is this possible w/ the new 2.2 shocks (lift+coil pucks) that r comin w/ 4" susp lift (or will they be 2 short) Will driveshaft be ok (no slip yoke eliminator right now, and not purchased ). Is this even possible to do a 4" lift w/ 1.75"coil spacer? Do u need longer shocks and modified dshaft for coil puck lifts? Should I stick w/ 4" susp and 3" body? What's pros and cons of each? Thanks for help
you dont need a 3" BL on top a 4" of SL. buy their 1.25" BL and call it good.
to mount any coil spacer on top of 4" of SL is risky. when i say risky, i mean you might have to drop your skid plate 3" instead of 2". 5.75" of SL minus 3" TCD equals a ground clearance gain of 2.75"... is it worth it?
agree with previous post dont go with the 3inch body its just too much. i have 2in and at times its too much for my liking. it makes your jeep appear to have big akward gaps.
But always remember it is YOUR jeep

How large of tires are you planing to run? Have you re-geared to handle the tires? What rear axle do you have? As previously stated, more than 4" on the suspension will pretty much require an SYE kit and double cardan shaft. I personally would not go over 1.25" of body lift, as I think it looks tacky. Fill out your profile so we know more about your Jeep.

right now jeep is completely stock, looking at going with 33s, so i can still use as daily commuter (spring, summer, fall, here in michigan). i was just lookin at safe max height before it starts getn expensive. so u guys say the 4" w/ 125-1.5 BL? My kid brother has a 3" (that is all he has) with 33s and it looks fine and handles fine, is this ok because he isnt sitting on an additional 4" SL?
I run 35's on a 4" suspension lift and to me it looks good. Running more than 4" of lift with 33's will look a little goofy IMO.
