Are you running 35s on a stock D35?

Limited should be a D30.


But as for the origional question... As long as you have the correct length shocks you should be fine with another 2"

You mention 6" LA kit and 2" Coils. Do you mean 6" Coils that come with the LA kit and 2" Spacers?

If so, with 8" & 35s on a WJ you may need to look at: Drop Pitman Arm and a new Steering Box. Also, I designed and made my own quick-disconnects fro my ZJ when I lifted it 9", its very easy, the hard part is finding a shop to make them.

Not sure if there is an over-the-knuckle steering setup for a a WJ, I installed one on my ZJ when I went from 5.5" to 9", but that was a great benefit as well.

And, if possible, I'd recommend 8" springs over 6" springs and 2" spacers. I know Rubicon Express makes 8" coils but I also know they closed - not sure if they have or will re-open.

My '98 ZJ was a Special Edition with Tow Package and Dana 44s. Is there a possibility of that on the 04 WJs?

Just remember, in some states a LA kit will not pass inspection as the stock CA locations must be removed. So, you may have trouble selling it later - if you decide to. I used Rusty's Off-Road Bolt on adjustable LA system when it finally came out. It was just the LA, not a kit. BEfore that I had Rubicon express fab custom Control arms. It was a bit ridiculous as the angle was so steep.

Sorry for my half-assed response, but I am not familiar with the WJ setup. My experience is on ZJs and I am currently learning on my Wk2.
