2" budget boost

Anybody know how good these are? Only $100.00 but also only 2 inches.

Installing mine very soon. I'll let you know if I like it. A lot of people have the 2" BB and seem to be happy with it. I plan to do the 1.25" BL with the 2" BB. Just waiting on my Bilstein 5100s. There on back order.

They are nothing more than spacers. Recommend extended bumpstops and longer shocks.

I need new shocks anyway so it might just be a good idea and some motivation to just do it all at once

Mine had one on it when I bought the jeep. it will allow larger tires for a low price. Just to improve the stance of your jeep it's an inexpensive upgrade.

These are 2.25", but I wouldn't go any taller for spacers.

Fabtech, skyjacker, rubicon express, bestop, truck tires, pro comp wheels

Are spacers actually good performance-wise? I'm a little sketchy about them

And what would be the biggest tires with just the 2" BB? 31s?

Performance wise, they retain most of the stock ride and stock reliablity with the extra clearance. Nothing to really be concerned about.

32" tire is pretty much the max for a 2" BB. I trimmed my flares up 1", so I am running 33" tires with the 2" BB and bumpstops.

Had my TJ for 2 weeks and...

thats the lift I am planning on but not sure if I should wait until I get new tires (bigger) right now I have 30" and not sure that would look dumb.

good? depends how you define "good" and what you're looking to accomplish.

BB spacers are not an improvement by suspension performance standards, but they're tolerable for the most part.

A real spring lift is always a better choice for suspension performance/mechanics.
