    you can but there’s a part of the front bumper that needs to be cut off so the tires don’t run when at full turn.

    The Jeep in that video is about to get a 1.5" Daystar spacer lift.

    Why Daystar and why a spacer lift?

    -WAYYYY less money
    -Maintains factory ride
    -Maintains factory spring rate for hauling/towing
    -Guarantees how much actual lift you'll end up with depending on which spacer you select

    When you use a spacer lift, since you're not changing shocks, does it use up x" of the factory shock travel? I'm assuming so.

    No because the spacer lifts come with shock extension bracketry.

    i only see a 1.5" leveling kit, (front end only) do they also have a 4 wheel "LIFT" kit?

    They've got a 2" lift kit, but I'm using their 1.5" front spacers and mixing-matching other parts from them to make the rear sit with just a hair of rake for hauling/towing purposes.

    Trying to decided between the daystar and alloy 1.5 inch level kits. Hoping to have a stance with some rake but less than OEM. I am adding a winch to the front bumper so I figured the level kit would leave just a bit of rake when all is said and done. 3 questions, what are the pros and cons of daystar vs alloy? Are there any other options I should be looking at? Neither of these kits come with bump stop extensions, do I need them? Local off road shop thought I would want bump extensions with either kit, especially if I run 35 inch tires.

    You can buy a bump stop extension kit, but some of them are overpriced. What I'm going to do is make my own. I bought some electrical conduit plastic end caps and two bolts. I'm going to make a video tomorrow about this. I think it'll work perfectly and it cost me $6 bucks.

    As far as Daystar vs. Alloy, I cannot comment on Alloy products because I've never used them. But Daystar makes awesome stuff and their poly spacers actually have a small amount of cushioning to them under coil spring load which makes them less noisy and have a slightly better ride quality vs. steel spacers from some other companies and that's why I am going with Daystar this time around.

    If I was going to run a winch, I'd add a little extra lift height in the front to compensate. A winch can go close to 100 lbs. all by itself depending on which one you choose. That's going to be noticeable on a Jeep.

    So what route are you going with the rear? Daystar 1.5 front with bump extenders, with a 3/4” spacer in rear with bump hardware also?

    I can't wait for that video. I've subscribed and watched all of your Gladiator videos. Actually, almost all of your JL videos as well. Thanks for contributing to our community. You are an immense help to people like me.

    BTW, Speaking of cost, do you think there is enough room/space on your Sport S to fit a 16" wheel? Found some steelie looking wheels and I want to get the 16" version to save money on tires - 315 x 75 x r16. https://fifteen52.com/products/analog-hd-slate-grey?variant=15113774104642
