2" bb

By christmas I'll have enough money for either a 2"BB or 2.75" lift, any suggestions?

Rubicon express 2" bb with shocks. You can upgrade it later as the shocks are made to handle up to 3.5" of lift.

I went with a Teraflex 2"BB from Summit Racing for $130 out the door.... I still run stock shocks....

Mainly posted to give you an idea for your install... No pros or cons from my kit, works for what it is.... other than super easy install and came with bump stops extenders.

Personally, I would go with a 2.5" OME spring lift. You have to remove the springs to install the BB spacers anyway, you might as well get rid of the old stock springs and get some new ones.

That depends, if you're really strapped and can only afford say a 2.25" Skyjacker lift kit with Hydro shocks for $229 then I'd go with 4wheelcustoms.com, (and keep the rubber Isolater pads that are on the front of your jeep now). but if you've got a little more than that to spend I would go with the Savvy spring lift. Good quality and not too expensive.

I saw a teraflex 2" BB for 140 and a 4 wheelcustoms 2.5 for 85, I'm guessing the teraflex is better?

meh.. teraflex is fine and lots of people use it but it isn't considered top of the line. IMO never just run spacers. Make sure you get the new shocks as well is you get a bb
