First Lift

So I feel bad because I keep hammering the Northridge vendor here with a million questions since I don't really know what parts I need to get to do a lift on my jeep. I have a 2011 wrangler unlimited sport. I'm getting the OME 2inch BB lift kit (springs and shocks). For now, I'm going to be running stock wheels with stock tires (the 32s). It sounds like I wont need bump stops, but will I need spacers? And I hate to ask, but it'd be worse not to; if I need spacers, do I need them on just the front or on all 4 wheels? And is there anything else I need to get my hands on, the jeep is completely stock, and I have access to a full garage so tools wont be an issue, but I want to make sure I have all the right parts to make this painless.

Wheel spacers are for putting wider tires on wheels that don't have proper backspacing. It has nothing to do with a lift. You will need a good hydraulic floor jack and some strong, solid jack stands. You will need a metric wrench or socket set, especcially 18mm and 16mm. You will also need some beer. Other than that you'll be fine. Project JK has some write ups that are easy to follow along.

cool. and my follow up question to make everyone facepalm >.>

So, the jeep is already a bit high for the little lady. is there a good way to put spacers or somehow lower the step bar so it can actually assist her with getting in? or should i just grab some popcorn everytime she wants to go for a ride?

no facepalm here my wife has issues with ride height too, roll bar grab handles help a ton.
