Questions: 2" Budget Boost on 2011 Stock Rubicon

As the title states, I have a 2011- for all intensive purposes stock - Rubicon. I would like to put in a 2" Budget Boost Kit. I see some kits that have shock extensions, some that do not, some that have this and that and some that do not. I just need someone to tell me what I need and why so I have a good understanding. I know there is alot of info via searching on this topic but I am looking for someone who has done a budget boost on a Rubicon that has had good luck and no issues, pics would be good too. I dont want to go too high because I have stock tires and dont want it to look to silly and I am only 5'8" on a good day and dont necessarily want to have a running start to hop in.

The rubicon has some decent shocks.
I bought my lift kit with the extensions but bought new shocks afterwards.

That sticky is loaded with great reviews
