Do you have plans of installing a winch, bumper, tire carrier, armor or other gear?

Take the stock springs sagging under any added weight into consideration also. A spacer does nothing to support any additional weight.

That's one of the reasons I started exploring other options like the AEV kit.

You can do the synergy spacer lift for $100 and if you are just driving around on the road it will be all you need. If you are going to run the factory wheels I would suggest running a 1.75" wheel spacer from spidertrax to fit a 35x12.5" wide tires.

You can also search the forums for take BB take offs to save some money.
