What size spacers?

So, I came to the conclusion after some comments and research to go ahead and buy the OME suspension lift. I'm going to start ordering everything by pieces exept for the lift kit. I plan on buying spacers well before tires, so I was wondering what size spacers would be a safe bet?

It depends. Will you be using the stock rims or purchasing aftermarket rims?

If using stock rims an will be going with tires larger than a 255/70 I would suggest 1.25in or 1.5in( seems to be the one everyone goes with )

I do plan on running stock rims for a while. I think I'll go with 1.5 to be safe. Thank you.

Sounds like a good plan. You can't go wrong with 1.5in spacers.

I went with a aftermarket rims with different offset and the difference was night and day

Back in the day when I ran spacers I went with the 1.25 inch spidertrax spacers for a WJ Grand Cherokee (same bolt pattern as our jeeps). That way I didn't have to worry about the rubbing issues with the tires sticking out farther.
