'12 Rubi (2dr) Lift Kit Options

I'm looking to lift my wife's JK. We settled in on the TeraFlex 2.5" spring/coil lift kit with the shock adapters. I'm looking at the Bilstein shocks, but not exactly sure yet.
I dont want to spend a zillion on the lift, we will be adding larger tires, front bumper/winch and rear bumper/tire carrier. So saving a few bucks here and there would help.
Anyone have any suggestions?

I just got done putting on the 2.5" TF lift with Bilstien 5100 shocks and it i think a good option

If you bought the kit with shock adapters and don,t want to spend a zillion dollars just use your stock shocks. I put the same kit on my rubicon and used my stock shocks works fine.when you put the bump stops and extensions on the stock length seems fine, even when disconnected.

If you pony up for the 9550 shocks you will not be disappointed. On the street they rode better than my fox 2.0's.

So dumb question, what's the part number (or size) of the Bilsteins that'll work on the TF 2.5" lift?

Rancho XL 9000 are the way to go, they are adjustable from 1-soft to 9 off road stiff. And because it's your wife's all the more reason to go with them.
After I went Rancho xl9000 3 of my buddies have also changed there shocks to them. mine is also 2.5 inches.

What's your front bumper?

My wife isn't so much concerned with ride "comfort" - more concerned with a good off road performance and acceptable on road...

Teraflex 2.5 with adapters is the way to go if you have Rubicon shocks...... We did this to 4 of our Jeeps to start out with and you do not need any other shocks for a long time to come. You will be a happy camper.....unless you really want to toss your money around. Here are 2 of our Jeeps with the 2.5". Both have 35" BFG KM2's
