There is a big difference between 3" of lift and 6" of lift.

35s on a gen 2 are pointless with out gear options you can run most trails out there with 33s and armor

If you plan on carrying any type of load I'd stay away from the AAL, in any of the jeeps that i've owned the AAL never lasted very long 2-3 years max and that was without adding any significant loads, before they sagg. Yes they are a cheap way to gain height but you will end up spending more in the long run after they fail and you end up replacing the whole spring pack anyway. If you're trying to save a bit find a donar vehicle with similar sized leaf springs that you can add the main leaf into the existing leaf pack, or ones that are a little longer for more height. I had a sight that referenced these for jeeps and other vehicles but can't find it right now. If i find it I'll post the link.

If you want 6" of lift you are going to want to get a full replacement left.
