2 inch lift

I had a dead stock 06 wrangler sport. I bought it to tow behind my motorhome.... but I'm thinking of doing a 2 inch lift. Question is what all do I need to change to do the 2 inch lift......

I put on a Skyjacker 2" spacer lift (Skyjacker 2" Spacer Lift Kit for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec) and didn't have to change anything else in the suspension.

Had it on since spring of 2007 and haven't had an issue at all. It's my daily driver so for me the 2" was perfect, don't think I'd go any taller.

how detailed do you want to get?

you can get away with not changing much...but if you spend the money to change certain things, the ride and driveability will be much better.

I run a ~2" lift, and I've changed some stuff...here's more info...

I put the Old Man Emu 2" lift kit on my 06 LJ Rubicon and couldn't be happier. I liked that it was springs and shocks instead of the spacers. A lot of people like the spacers though so it's all personal preference. Ride quality I feel is better than stock though with the OME kit.

^^This is the answer you need to give us first. Depends upon what you want to do with it. Just street riding, springs, new shocks, and proper bumpstops will be more than enough. More than just street riding and the answer is different.
But I bought the DPG Ultimate kit. It was fairly complete for what I needed to do with my jeep. Still looking into a few things though like a tie rod swap.

Well a 2.5" OME lift is a good one in my opinion. It rides great. And for street use, just get extended sway bar links front and rear, and maybe an adj. front track bar and you'll be good to go. Make sure the bumpstops are proper length and you won't have any problems. In my opinion, that'll give you the best of both worlds. Match that with 31's or 32's and you'll be pretty happy I think.

with proper bumpstop extensions front and rear to avoid clearance issues or shock damage.

What size tires are on this? I really like the look! I also want the 2 in spacer lift from skyjacker but I was hoping to fit 33s under. Not going to do any serious wheeling. And its my DD.
