How much of a lift did you actually get and how noticeable is the height difference between the teraflex 1.5 and the Dynatrac?

Love your build. What is the purpose of wheel spaces? Do they compromise safety at all? Do they add trail performance or is it purely aesthetic? I'm new to jeeps, sorry for the questions. I have a Mojito Green Moab and your build is inspiring!

Your Jeep looks great! What length did you set your adjustable control arms at with your Dynatrac Lift? Do you know what your caster is at now?

Wheel spacers are fine to run as long as you torque them down I wouldn't worry. I've had mine on for 5 month now and haven't had any trouble. The spacers will help get the wheel out away from the frame and control arms and allow you to have wider tires without rubbing those area's. If you do go to wide of a spacer it is easy to catch the lip of the fender. I have the synergy 1 5/8 spacers on stock sport s wheels with the rubicon tires and suspension and under full flex my rear tires just touch the lip of the fender but I don't cause any damage. I'll disconnect this weekend and let you know if I rub the front fenders or not. Also if you get aftermarket wheels with a correct offset and width for the tires and lift size you are using you won't have a need for spacers. Hope this helps!

This was a huge help, thank you! I'm new to Jeeps so trying to understand everything I can. :)
