Question Rancho 2.5" YJ Suspension Lift?

Just got a 95 YJ and want to put a Rancho 2.5 " suspension lift on it. Anyone put on this particular lift? looking for reviews, cost for tools on top of the kit, time install. Seems relatively simple just replace old leaf springs with the new ones that have a larger arc but I'm a newbie so any info would help.

Also has to be rancho suspension not rough country or others because I can get the parts for cost.

Looks like you'll be going with the Rancho no matter what. Should change the shocks too. TC drop if needed. You'll know once you drive it with the lift on. Probably need to adjust your draglink to put the steering wheel back to center.
Same install as any other lift.
Normal tools for this type of job...ratchets, sockets, wrenches, BFH...you know the deal.
Mapp Gas Turbo Torch to heat up stuck nuts/bolts.
Probably want to invest in an angle grinder if you don't have one to cut any stubborn bolts.
Plenty of PB Blaster.

Should be no more than a weekend taking your time.

Good Luck
