Default Go 2" taller, wait, or sell?

When the 7" lift was done to the Ram, the spacers were taken out. The kit uses the factory rear blocks with new springs. I could put the spacers back in and change the blocks to get up to 9", but I'm clearing the tires fine now and I'd most likely have to buy new shocks. It might look goofy with more lift and 37's. I'm leaning towards selling the spacers and shocks that were installed with them, which really only have a couple thousand miles on them at the most.

What would you do?

You now have a big-ass truck, getting a big-ass trailer to pull around your big-ass land yacht....

Keep the parts for a few months. You'll know then if you're happy with the lift or want more.
