Stacking my Superlift
So I'm going to dive into uncharted
Waters here and try bumping up my Superlift to be able to accommodate 285/75/17's. I'm not sure what the final outcome will be but I'm starting with 2" spacers in the rear from Rusty's offroad that came in the mail today. Up front I'm going to run bilstein struts to gain 3/8" of height. If the rake ends up being to harsh I'll pull the spacers out and cut them down. Here are some measurements from center of wheel
to fender:
Front: 23 1/2". Rear: 23"

After spacers/struts
Front 23 7/8". Rear. 25"

I used a jack/stands to raise front and rear to the exact height the combo would take it to so I could get underneath and make sure everything looked good to go:
Additional 3/8" in front and 1" in rear:
3/8" in front and 2" in rear:

Wish me luck!

I'm in the process of doing something similar. I will be done on Friday.

Your super was pretty low! I had 24'' all around before I added the .25'' spacer which brought me up to 24.5 up front. My rear needs 1'' since I lost height do to the weight so now I'm at 23.5.

My measurements may be off. The offset and dish of my wheels made it really hard to get an accurate measurement. I used top of tire to fender measurements to jack it up 2" in rear and 3/8" in front, so I know I at least got that part right. I'm going to measure again using a jig of t-squares so my wheel offset doesn't get in the way.

Hey 2for3, are you going to cut your rear spacers down? Did you get the Rusty's 2"?

No. I have the RK rear spacer. I'm about to call and ask where do they recommend it be installed. Top or bottom.

Also, before you install spacer on top of spacer, check out JBA's 4" lift rear coils. Rear coils that give you 4" of lift for around $100.

It won't be spacer on spacer, it will be the rear Superlift spring on top of the Rusty's spacer ending up with ~6" of lift. The Superlift includes steering knuckles, front diff relocation bracket, lca's, etc that place geometry back to stock. So any additional lift from the spacers will only take my geometry off by that much.... if that makes any sense.
