Rock Krawler Max Travel 2.5 System

I have a 2 door sport and I initially wanted to get the Teraflex 2.5" lift kit until I realized I want to go bigger. Since this will be the initial set of mods the bill will be quite expensive with tires and all. That said I can't afford drive shafts at this time plus everything to correct geometry correctly. So I started looking for an upgradeable lift kit and I found the RK system. I'm not looking to debate the quality as I have already heard a lot of guys running it. But I do have a few questions...

1. When I am ready to to upgrade to a 3.5" lift can I just buy the coils and extended brake lines? Anything else I might need? (Besides drive shafts)
2. Since I'm not a hard wheeler (yet) and more of a mall queen can I just use the Teraflex shock extensions with this lift? Not sure if new shocks will be in the budget right away if I go with a 500$ more expensive lift.
3. What is everyone gaining in net lift with this kit? I think I remember reading somewhere that someone with a 2 door gained 3.5"?

As always, thanks in advance.

The Tereflex lift would require the same parts as the RK lift to make it 3.5" so it is "upgradeable".
Most lift shocks are for a range ( like 2" thru 4" of lift like my Fox 2.0 IFP shocks. Just get some shocks like that and skip the adaptors.
My TF 2.5 netted 2.5 in font and 2.0 in the back. Don't know about RK but i guess it would be like TF or a bit taller.

All depends on what kit you choose. RK has quite a few. Obviously more parts the better.
If you were to buy the kit with all 8 arms, 2 track bars. All you would need is coils adjustability (witch you have with arms) and possible driveshafts.
Then there's the Highsteering kit if you choose
The RK coils are rated for a 4 door so you get 1" plus up front. More if lightweight.

Usually 2 door guys stay with the 2.5's and 4 door 3.5's
