I'm thinking about purchasing this lift kit and was wondering will I need to upgrade my axles as well? I have 29.5 outlaws on now and was thinking about wheel spacers as well. Thanks!

50/50 really. some people have no problems. my bud put on the 2" lift with 29.5" swamplites and snapped cv joint within 10 min of first ride. He then put in rhinos and hasn't had an issue, plus now hes running terminators.

Are we talking a bracket kit or spring spacers? I have a set of Gorilla spring spacers on the way so I'll see how that goes.
i'm 99% sure OP is talking about the highlifter 2" bracket lift.
you might find 2" spring spacers might be a little on the stiff side with stock shocks and springs but who knows.

It depends on the axels. If you have the cheap ebay axels yes you will have issues. But if you are running your oem or another good axel you should be fine.

I'm still running stock axles. Right now I'm getting a bit of rub on my back springs from the lugs on the outlaws that's why I was thinking about wheel spacers.

2" highlifter lift kit

Wheel spacers won't change the length of the required axle. And a 2" lift, you'll be fine.

I'm not sure if it gives you a full 2" but I'm a little afraid the ride might feel to tippy with the lift

Any time you add lift you are changing your center of gravity, just adjust your ridng style to account for the additional lift and dont make unnecessary hard turns. I would also suspect that adding lift and making sharp turns would do a number on your tie rod ends. With every aciton comes an equal but opposite recaction, just account for it and you should be fine.

be safe
