i have a stock 2010 2dr rubicon and i'm considering putting the poly performance coil spacers on it. i am looking at the 1.75" front .75" rear spacers. since it's such a short lift, would i really need to worry about my trackbars or should the stock ones work?

my plan is to run these spacers with tube fenders and 35" bfg km2's, so really 34's.

my plan is to put a stubby bumper and winch on the front and a heavier rear bumper with a tire carrier on back so hopefully it should sit close to stock height once that's all on.

i see that a lot of people use the shock relocation brackets but i'm hoping i can get away without using those.

You will be fine with all the stock stuff on. I beleive the cut off is two inchs then you would have to run bigger shocks or extension brackets. Then at three inchs you have to start changing trackbars and everything else.:beer:

I learned from experience. Track bars ordered, extended shocks orderd, sway bar links installed. all for 4'' inches of lift 2'' with springs, 2'' with spacers. One thing leads to another. Good news for you is up till 2'' inch everthing else can remain stock as already mentioned above. And you will maintain the stock ride.

that's good. i don't want to go too wild as this is my daily driver and i'm building an old bronco for the more severe stuff.

less fabricating and more bolt-on stuff takes up less of my time but more of my money. i'm not sure which one i have less of these days.

now i just need to decide between wheel spacers and stock wheels or just going with 15" steel wheels and saving money on tires as well. i like the look of the stock wheels but the wheel spacers cost about as much as the steel wheels.

What size tire are you wanting to run?

On my wife's '10 2DR I'm running JKS ACOS in front adjusted to 2.5-in. of lift, and 1.75-in. fixed spacers in the rear. I replaced the shocks with Bilstein 5100s for 2-3.5 inches of lift (gives me more droop than compression). The only thing I've had to do is install bump stop spacers to keep the tires out of the fenders (her Jeep has AEV Pintler wheels with 285/70R17 MT/Rs).
