i've measured one and it is actually 2 inches...you could always build a quarter inch smaller

just got finished putting on a BB. they were right at 2'' but don't forget about the lip on them. front and back were the same. you will also need some bump stop extensions, longer shocks, xfer lowering kit or a new adj. track bar for the front. (I know from experience)

You won't need longer shocks or the lowering kit for a 2 inch lift anything more and you will.

I don't believe this. Riding around town with 2 extra inches of lift and stock shocks and they will bottom out on pot holes and such. You need a longer shock to accompany the extra ride height.

you only need extra bumpstop if you move up in tire size

yeah...longer shocks would be a good idea...with 2 inches of lift your shocks (like stated above) will stretch to their fullest and bottom out on just the smallest pot hole...and while i am here...MR. CLIFFORD, if i move up in tire size without a lift will i need bump stop extensions?
