So I’m new to the off-roading thing. This is my first Jeep 2019 jlu sting gray sport. I have the 2.5 Rc spacer lift so far for budget purposes. 18 wheels. 35 tires. What would help the ride and off-road capabilities without a full lift system. For now.

Shocks, springs, both. Other things?
Would shocks help soften the ride a little bit? Seems more stiff with the spacer lift. I appreciate any help or suggestions ahead of time

looking for rugged ridge fender they had a seam. Either tube or the more factory look higher rise fenders. Or rubicon replacement fender for more space.

The 35x12.50r18 Ridge Grapplers are an F load rated tire. That's going to be what's hurting you ride....
Adding fox shocks will only firm up the ride a bit as the stock sports shocks are already fairly soft.

The spacer keeps your stock suspension so that would not be the issue. You have purchased F rated tires which are meant for super duty trucks that haul. This is the cause of your issue. I'd suggest lowering PSI to 26. May help a bit but other than that there really is no option to fix the firm ride.

Ok. So next time around I need to get a different rated tire. So. Besides the ride. What would be some worthwhile upgrades for suspension at this point. We Do a trip or two to the mountains every year. Now plan to be able to do some trails I’ve always wants to.
