TF 1.5" performance kit with spacers?

I am going to put a TF performance leveling kit on my 2008 JKU with stock tires for now. I plan to eventually run this kit with flat fenders and 35's. I already have a set of 3/4" spacers for the front and rear. Everything I've read says that I will be fine with this kit and stock shocks and don't need any other components. If I add the 3/4" spacers, will I need any additional components after I add the spacers?

I'm running the TF leveling kit with 2" in front and 1" in rear on 35's with cut fenders. I'm also running stock shocks with zero problems. I wouldn't run with the additional 3/4" spacer as I would think you'd need longer front shocks and may run into problems elsewhere. To me, I love my setup and feel its perfect for both DD and moderate wheeling.

Wow!! Great looking Jeep. I was just worried that it may not be enough lift after a front bumper/winch and rear tire carrier. I have some shock extensions until I can get some new shocks but I was worried I might have to have track bars or control arms

Thx man! If you're going to run bumpers front and rear, that will put you back close to stock height. With that much weight, you may want to look at a quality spring lift that includes front LCAs and track bar. Also, the extra weight from the larger tires will stress your track bar and frame side mount significantly. I haven't yet but the Synergy track bar and frame side brace is on my list, just to be safe long-term. You can also run something on the smaller side of 35 (like MIckey Thompsons) that run smaller. Either way, good luck and hope this helps.
