2 inch BB lift

when it comes to lifts im a noob lol so i need alittle help ...im wanting to start off with a 2 inch BB lift which im looking at this one: Polyurethane Accessories by Skyjacker for Jeep Wrangler TJ do i need those sway bar brushing kits too? will i need any thing extra with the spacer lift kit? im thinkin possibly a shock 2 inch longer? any specific tools im gonna need? any thing at all u think ill need to know would be great info...i do very little offroading btw, fielding if ne thing


2nd question, im runnin 31x10.50s now, thinking bout runnin 32x11.50's will those fit on my 15 inch rim? and the 10.50s rub when i turn sharp all the way...the lift wouldnt stop that right? and if the 32x11.50 dont rub and it does fit on my 15 inch rim i wouldnt have to change anything like gearing or ne thing to make the jeep still run decent right? im thinkin big acceleration loss and mpg cause i got the 4 cyl....but i get crapy mpg now and slow acceleration anyway so i dont really care lol just wanna make it look good

i installed a 2"BB and run a set of 31's on my 4 banger and i did loose power, im not sure home much more power would be lost with a set of 32's. as for the rubbing you might want to look into a set of spacers of even some new wheels with some back spacing. the sway bar bushings are only needed if the factory ones are shot. and you should look into a new set of shocks, and a set of sway bar disconnects would help for off-roading.

I have the skyjacker 2" spacers that I bought in a kit with the longer shocks for about $250. I'm running 32" BFG's as well on 15x8 cheapo steel wheels and no rubbing. I only had to replace my sway bars last month after two years of running this set up. Gas mileage and speed are worst than before, but not extremely noticeable to me. I'd rather have my TJ look this way. No hard core off-roading, just Florida sand a couple of times a year.

back spacing is the amount of space between the inner rim and the part of the rim that the lugs go to. allowing the wheel to sit further from the rotor. that way you can get the full amount of turning without any rubbing.

I ran a 33.12.50 on a 15x8 rim with 3.75 backspacing, had minor rub at full turn on lower control arm. Had a 2" spacer lift and 1" body at the time. also the price seems high for the spacers, I have been looking for a set and have found them for around 60-70 for all 4 of them. no-longer bump stops though with that price.

Awesome tire offroad, not so good on the street. By buddy ran them on his YJ and liked them a lot and drove it on the road a lot, but when he got out of the habit of rotation and balancing they killed themselves pretty quick.

275 sounds like an alright deal, keep in mind they're a pretty cheap tire anyhow though.

I have the Rubicon Express 2" BB lift w/o shocks that I'll sell for $65 shipped. It was only installed for a couple of months. I ran 32 x 10.5 tires with a 10" wheel with 3.75" backspacing. Didn't have any rubbing problems. Let me know.
