coilspacer lift and suspension lift?

I have a 97 tj. It already has a 2" coil spacer (budget boost) lift on it. I was thinking about adding a 4" suspension lift to it and was wondering what , if anything, i would have to do to run the two together. The 2" lift didn't need any extra's just install the blocks between the frame and springs.. Its been installed for about 4 months and is working just fine no tire wear or anything like that. So i guess what i'm asking is has anyone done this? or does anyone have any ideas as to what i would need to do to make this work. Thanks for any help you may be able to give.

That would be a lot of lift, you would need a sye, cv driveshaft, and at least 35'' tires which would mean upgrading brakes, steering, gears, and last but not least if you have a D35 that too. I would take the spacers out and the shocks you have now and sell them on the forum to help with the cost of the new lift and tires they sell like hotcakes around here just my $.02

I run RE 4.5 springs in the front with 2" spacers.. It helps to have upper and lower adj control arms. The back I only run the springs no spacers and just have the lower adj arms. It wheels fine, but it is a lot of lift. I run 35's with it, could go bigger if i wanted maybe 37's with out adjusting anything, but it would be rather close in the back.

Nope, sure don't, I have pal that runs about the same setup with 33's and a D35, although he has the upgraded super kit in it.

The only reason i've thought about more lift is because i do alot of mudding. and i'd like to be as far from harms way as i can.. i run 33's right now with wheel spacers so i have a wider stance. I got stuck in some mud when my jeep was stock and had my jeep not run for the 2 hours i was stuck that prob would have been the end of her. if i only had about 5" more of lift i wouldn't have had to worry about anything. Can i maybe get a parts list, an idea of pricing and/or maybe even a place to come across the extra parts, you know if nobody has anything better to do with their time. And don't worry i do plan on doing axel swaps and bigger wheels and all that jazz in time. its just gonna be a process

Just go with the RE 4.5" SF Kit w/ 3.5" springs add a BL and MML, SYE, CV driveshaft, and go from there...with that setup you'll be fine running 33's or 35's. It already comes with a front adjustable trackbar and control arms. You can regear and do the axles when you have the money/time. It's a great overall start.
