lifting my 2 wd commander?

i have seen some stuff on revtek . it consists of 2"" in the front and 1 1/2" rear.and have looked at what everyone else has done. i would imagine the coils are the same and i would like to go bigger if possible. i miss my yj and would like to be up a little more than stock.

There are several 2.25 & 2.5 lifts for the Commander, Check out the Suspension category for specifics on each one.

As far as the lift is concerned there is no difference. These are all really a body lift so they can be done on 2 wheel and 4 wheel in the same exact way.

Actually these are a suspension lift. You cannot do a body lift on a unibody, which is what the Commander has.

actually... your lifting the body, and not putting in taller suspension. I'd say its a body lift. Body goes up, and suspension stays the same.

It's called a suspension lift. Check out these two articles:

when u lift the 4 wheel drive anything over2" or 2.5" do u need to change spindles or lower arms. for alignment reasons? i worked in a shop lifting trucks and jeeps but we did not come across any commanders. the closest is the fj-40 which consisted of the same thing with the coil spacers. however they had more room for tire clearance.
