Going with a 2" lift, what else needs to be done?
 
I am planing to lift my WJ 2" using Fat Bob's 2" spring and Bilstein 5100 shocks. Is there anything else I will need to do for this lift height? I plan to replace the bar pin with the JKS Bar Pin Eliminators.

What else would be recommended to change or replace when lifting a WJ 2 inches?

your good to go but change change other suspension parts if you want, there not needed. make sure to get an alignment.

Google wj lift chart and look under images

Thanks for the lift info, it has been insightful. I think I am leaning towards the IRO 3" lift with Doetsch shocks, instead of the Fat Bobs springs/Bilstein 5100 shocks. I would like to clear 245/70R17 tires without rubbing.

Will I need to recalibrate my speedometer? Would I have to use a programmer (Superchips) for this?

Has anyone tried the bar pin eliminators? Are they worth installing?

I plan on replacing the sway bar end links front and back, are there any other parts that would be recommended (that are not included inteh IRO 3" lift)?

I have Bridgestone Dueler A/T's in a 245/70R17 that clear no problem..... that said I am totally for lifting!

You shouldn't need to reprogram the speedometer, assuming my GPS is accurate there is only a 2mph difference at 70mph so I haven't bothered.

If you plan on disconnecting the sway bar for off-roading, I have heard the improved addco sway bar does good things for on-road handling.

same here. no rubbing on stock ride height and minimal speedo diff, its within the 3% max tolerance. Nothing to worry about there.
