It certainly is, but the design on the front of the vehicle means no more than 1.25" of lift is safe, so it will counteract the winch weight if you're not lifted already. If you've already done the full lift, it is what it is at that point.

To level it out and lift it, you could do the full lift in the front and use only one spacer per wheel in the rear. That would give 1.25" in the front and either .4" or .5" in the rear, depending on what size spacer you use/prefer.
