I actually like the spacers on now it sits the edge of the tires right outside of the fenders. Very nice Stance

Maybe so, but 3" of backspacing is really low. I'm thinking your front end won't like that too much.

Welcome to JeepForum.

Now, fill up that profile with specs on your JK so when you ask questions about mods (and you will ask questions about mods) we'll know what you're runnin' and can advise appropriately.

Let me start.

Just go with 35's at a minimum, gear it to at least 5.13 for manual or 5.38 for an auto, if you want more power and better fuel economy buy a 4bt.

That'll do for now.

You won't have to look for it, you'll know when a spacer sheers off and your drop onto your rotor, or when the knuckle breaks and your hub totally separates from the axle, or when your axle tube breaks.

The Dana 30 is weak to begin with, you shouldn't put unnecessary stress on it simply because you like the look of the stance...what size tires are you running now, By the way?

Absolutely agree. Bad idea running spacers if they are not absolutely necessary to fit wheels/tires.
