Jeep jk lift questions

I am new to jeeps and trying to acquire some information so any advice and or help will be appreciated , I have a 2012 jk 2dr , I am looking to remove my current 2 inch lift, and replace it with a 4 inch suspension lift along with putting on 35's. My question is I am aware that I need wheel spacers so I have read 1.5 spacers will work ? and I also will need bump stops but how do I figure out what size bumpstops I will need ? ... Again thanks

Well what size tires are you running now? Are they on an aftermarket wheel? If you have stock wheels, then yes you need 1.5" spacers.

Just my opinion though, 4" might be too much lift for 35's. You can easily fit 35's under 2.5" of lift. You may also need driveshafts, adjustable control arms, adjustable front track bar, longer brake lines, sway bar end links and a rear track bar tower.

I was on approximately 3.5" with 35's and flats. I had PLENTY of room for 37's. (I did have control arms and driveshafts) Lift started life as a Teraflex 2.5"

Four inches of lift on your two door is going to require a complete kit with adjustable control arms, track bars, ect. A front driveshaft will be required as well.

For 35s we usually recommend a 2.5" system with either adjustable front lower control arms or control arm correction brackets depending on the use.

What size tires are you running with your 2" lift and what exactly is it that you have on there now to give you 2" of lift?

1.5" wheel spacers and stock wheels will give you the clearance you're looking for with a 12.50 tire as these other folks have stated.
