Question about lift kits and spacer kits.

Hi guys, first post here. I have a 2003 black rubicon with a 3" bds suspension lift and a 3" bds body lift. I had an old '97 sahara that i flipped, that had a 4 1/2 inch bds suspension, and a 3 inch bds body lift. I was wondering if I could add a spacer kit to my new jeep to make it a little bit higher like my old one. I don't know if this is possible to have with a body and suspension lift. Thanks guys.


Btw: I don't know much about jeeps, I just like the way they look. Spicer automotive does all of my mechanic work for me in north georgia.
cheers

hhmmmm....

Well ditch the gigantor body lift, that much stress on the body mounts can push those pucks right through the floor (actually happened to my friend TODAY).

If you want height just stick a one or two (max) inch body lift get a budget boost kit (spacers for the coils) and the tallest suspension kit you can find.

By the way Welcome to the forum!!

Welcome to the forum.

What size tires are you running?

Do you have any pics of you're current setup? (Maybe you can post a link to them.)

And.... what ^that^ guy said.

drop down to a 1" BL, and buy a real 4" spring lift kit WITH adjustable control arms. anything over 2" and you get into territory requiring longer control arms.
