Smile Shackle 2" lift question

I just bought a 95 YJ, it has a little 4 banger in it, and is bone stock..
I am thinking about lifting it a little, and wanted some input on the 2" shackle lift.
Will this affect the ride, and handling?
I don't do much offroading, I was mainly going for a little taller look.

I ran the same thing, It will run alot stiffer, it wont be a comfortable ride after and the shackles look kinda bad because they are so long, i sorta regret getting them so long. I suggest you split it the lift, 1 inch for a body lift and 1 inch for a shackle lift. It will cost you a little more money than just but you will get that taller look without sacraficing ride quality and the shackles wont be so protruding.

I have just about talked myself into a "add a leaf" lift..
I was trying to go the cheap route, but figured, I'd be waistin money, after changing my mind..

I don't know. I like my Rough Country add a leaf. Cranked it up the full two inches and doesn't feel that bad stiffnesswise...
