What do I need for a 2" lift kit?
 
Hey guys, I'm very inexperienced when it comes to cars, escp. lift kits..

I'm looking to lift my Jeep in the near future, either a 2", or 2.5-3" lift, and just wondering what do I need to buy?

Also, if anyone does know.. what tire size can I put on with a 2" lift that will fit comforatbly?

(Here are the wheels I'm going to be purchasing; http://www.jegs.com/p/JEGS-Performan...95303/10002/-1

Simple, for a two inch lift get the rough country spacers. I have them right now. That's all you need. Now depending on your trucks age I'd say get some new struts at the same time since they will already have everything apart, I went with bilstein hd's and love them.
Tire wise I'm using a 255/70/17, slight rub at full lock, but with spider trax spacers you could go much wider then 255, reguarding height, you could prob go to 75 without issues! Hope this helps.
(Btw, I just realized that idk if you have a wj or wk, but hell let's hope its a wk!)

I had a BDS 2" on my WJ. Cleared 265/70/17's just fine.
