    I tried searching the forums, but still kind of new and want to make sure I understand correctly. I have the RC 2.5” suspension lift with shocks installed on my JLU. I love the look and handling, but would like another inch of lift. Is it possible to just add spacers to the existing RC lift, or will additional parts need to be replaced? Thanks y’all.

    If it’s a coil lift then yes you can add a spacer on top. Be aware that the extra inch will put you into recommended potential upgrade territory. At that height I recommend a track bar to center the axle and also something for caster correction if it hasn’t been addressed yet.

    That would be 3.5"s and might need a driveshaft as well.

    There is a theoretical 3.0" limit for some components as i understand it.

    I have the Mopar 2" and at times I wanted it higher as well to prevent belly rub on some big rock trails. I decided to place air bags in the back and I air up when needed.. I chose the HD1000 https://www.etrailer.com/Vehicle-Suspension/Ram/1500/2019/AL60828HD.html

    Super happy with it... I run it at 7psi on the road (prevents blinding folks with the LED) and ~ 40 on trail.. ~ 1.5 " fully loaded with trailer and 5 people..

    hope that helps..
