questions about a 2inch lift

Hey all. I was thinking about getting a 2 inch skyjacker lift since I was going to get 1 inch spacers anyway I figured I'd spend another 200 for the shocks and another inch. My main concern is that it might look like a little funny since I'm only running 30s and is there anything that needs to be done with a 2 inch lift like I know with larger lifts some things.needs to be upgraded. I don't do any serious offroading because its my daily and I'm still in high-school but does anyone know if a.lift noticeablely decreases mpg and top speed


Thanks guys you're always a big help

I put 2 inch spacers and 31s on my TJ and I had to slightly adjust it, but its no biggie if your bolts aren't seized.

Hmmm I don't know about beadlocks, but I do know if you change the suspension, it changes the geometry of the steering components in the front, some people say you can do it with a tape measure, but I've never done it that way, but if my tire shop told me he couldn't do it with bead locks, maybe you can swap tires and rims with a buddy just to get it aligned, don't matter if its 34s or 44s.
