Additional height to 2009 Jeep WK with ARB 2" OME Lift?

I have recently added the following to my 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK:
  • ARB Old Man Emu 2" Lift Kit (Heavy Duty)
  • 265/70/17 BFG KO2 tires
  • JBA upper control arms

I absolutely love the ride so far, has made a huge difference. Only very slight rub at full turn. I also installed the Rocky Road leveling kit that adds very slight lift to the front to prevent the nose down look.

I am wondering if it is possible (and how) to add about 1 inch (or half inch) of additional height to the vehicle front & rear (without causing issues) while keeping the ARB kit installed? Is there a spacer kit or anything that can be used in addition to the OME lift that can help achieve this?

There is plenty of information in the stickies and the search function.

Strut top spacers are what I believe you are looking for. JBA used to have them, just some " steel plate CNCd to match the strut top.

As far as "still safe", the magic number for not destroying your front driveline is 23", center of hub to fender.
