So, I need help choosing a lift, I want something prrtty much cheep and easy that will get me some extra space underneath me while im off road...

Im thinking of rockyroad 2.25in lift but dont know if I absolutly need to get new shocks, can I just slap on the $200 spacers and be done with it?

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I have the same lift on my commander (going on 2 years). You don't really need to replace the rear shocks, I kept the factory ones on for a long time with no problems at all. Only thing you will gain is a little more travel in the axle with a longer shock but in my opinion not worth it.

For wheeling more wheel travel is always worth it.

exactly put the $150 spacers on and upgrade your shocks as they wear out. There some good threads around on what length of shocks to get.

I agree. With a decent set of tools and some mechanical knowledge, RC sells a do it yourself 2" coil spring extension kit that is fairly simple, for $149.00

I have had my Rocky Road lift for 4 years with no issues.

You will have to get a front end alignment when done. Could be very dangerous until you have the alignment done. Drive slow to the alignment shop and you should be ok.
