I have a toytec 3" adjustable lift. I want to get to 4" without purchasing a new kit. Can I add spacers to the existing setup safely and without new suspension hardware i.e. links, lines? I don't do any hardcore crawling mostly used as daily driver and occasional trail run. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Body lift. Can do 1/2" without modifying fan shroud, steering link, or bumpers. Also If your 3" isnt fully adjusted up, you could use trim packers for another ~1/2"

I added Toytec packers to my Fox 2.0s since they dont like to go full 3". Might you lose a CV, maybe.....but maybe not. Theyre easy to replace anyway.

I was able to run the Rubicon with a 3" lift. Once you go above 3", you will have issues with CV joint angles and the potential for trouble.

For an occasional trail run, 3" is a very good number.

You should be able to fit up to a 34" tire (285/75/17) with a 3" lift.

if you lift over 3 you'll need a front diff drop kit which makes the lift pointless. if you want an additional lift get 35" tires
