another lift question

OK, so I am looking at the Teraflex 2.5" lift for my 08 rubicon unlimited. There are three options - Basic, spacers, or with shocks. What do I want to do here? How are the stock shocks with spacers? What are the teraflex shocks like, or do I want to buy a basic kit and buy shocks seperately? If so, which ones? Thanks again guys. I will be running 35's, I am open to opinions on those too, daily driving plus a bit of playtime. I may get the BFG MT/KM2 unless there is something more recommended.

I have the 2.5" pucks with shocks.
But I have a 2-door with heaviest rate springs that were sacrificial pieces from an Unlimited with a tow package. The springs do a great job of taking up the extra weight generated by my bumpers, winch, overlanding gear, & trailer.

That said, I personally feel that all of the JKs are under-sprung (and under-dampened) in their stock condition. I advocate making sure that you have enough spring and go from there.

35s are bigger/heavier tires than anything stock. They introduce more dynamics to the suspension. Even if you don't intend to add bumpers or winch, I'd look at a kit that includes springs and shocks that will work with the additional loads.

Teraflex's spring kit, Rock Krawler, OME, Nth Degree, etc.
