I already have a sky jacker coil spacer budget boost, if I get 2" coil springs could I add the spacers to them and get a 4" lift?

yup ! bad news is for TJs it's not a good idea b/c of the stock control arm legnth. you can try it. it may work ok. I would suggest adjustable trackbars for sure.

maybe someone with a tj can chime in here?

what do you plan on doing and max tire size?

if ur gonna go 33s or 35s and some flexing i'd go with the first one. you should buy an adj trackbar, but it will likely tell you to drill out a new trackbar mounting hole.

if you go 4" on a TJ there are a few other things to look into..
slip yoke eliminator... new rear drive shaft.

although the lift you posted above has a t-case drop with it, but you are defeating the purpose of a lift in the first place...

What do you really plan to do with the Jeep and like was mention earlier tire size...

But if you really want my opinion... the sawz all is your friend.... Cut sheet metal until the tires fit....

how about you keep your 2" lift and go hi line fenders... and run 37's

a lot more stable, but more costly also
