my frist lift...

i have a stock TJ and decided to get it lifted. well this is my frist lift (noted that im still in high school), i was thinking just to get a 2.5 X-SERIES SUSPENSION LIFT KIT by rough country and then a Daystar 1-3/4 spacer so i can fit 33"x12.50"x15" on the stock rim. will this work? will i run into any snags? do i need spacers? do i need a extended drive shaft? any help will do

That should be fine as long as you set your bumpstop extensions properly

I don't even own a jeep anymore

Instead of the spacers use a 1" body lift.

X2 in the body lift.

My first lift was a rough county 3.75" combo. Worked well as in introductory lift. That had 2.5" suspension and 1.25" body lift.

You will need the steering aligned, either longer or disconnect type sway bar end links for the front, may need to adjust track bars, both front and rear (not as critical though).

As was said before, putting a coil spacer in requires lengthening the bumps too so you don't bottom out and break something.

Make sure you PB blast all the boots you may need to take off the day or two before you attempt I start. The way try should be easier to take off.
