I cant find any with that specific setup. I know with the shackles at the highest setting this willprovide a substantial amount of rake, but is it like a mean stance? Or is it too much. of course all I'll get is opinions, of which I need to make my own, so pictures would do if you have them. Either way I'll be adding my aal to my shackle/spacer setup this weekend so if idk by then I'll just experiment.

It will have a good bit of rake. Do you have adjustable shackles? If it's to much, then go lower with the shackle.
If u don't then u could put the stock shackles back on.

Obviously your about to find out if u like it or not.
I don't think to many people are runnin that setup.

These pics are from when I had that set up. Not too Flexy but I easily fit 285s and wheeled it for a while.

Its a good into set up if your still trying to figure out if wheeling is something you are interested in. Its cheap... its easy... and you'll stand out a little more than the rest on the road.

just remember that the suspension is going to settle in the rear. so it might look high at first but it should settle about a 1/2 inch

Cool. And with that combo maxed out in the rear, I shouldnt need extended brake lines right? How about in the future when I add the 2-4" bilsteins?

I had the 2-4 in in there now. never needed to extend the lines. stock leafs wont give you enough to rip or stretch a line.

Without all the gear in it for Moab, the rear sits a little higher, but here's a picture.


EDIT: those are 285/75r16 tires and I'm the one on the left

Nice setup! Are you experiencing any noises up front when going over bumps from the 2" spacers?
When it was first put in it made terrible metal cracking sounds and bangs over bumps, but i retightenned bolts after 50 miles andit stopped that. Also stopped bump noises after a while. Works for me.
