2" suspension lift

I have a '97 TJ with 31s and am thinking about getting a 2" suspension lift. I'm wondering if there's anything I should consider, or what all I need to make this happen?

As a start, I strongly suggest the BDS 2in kit.

I read some reviews and a few people were complaining about flexing. How hard is this to install?

Not sure about the validity of those reviews you read. BDS are great springs and I have seen some pretty wild flexing with just 2" BDS and disco'ed front end.

I have zero complaints about BDS flex . LOL, I am not disconnected in the pic below - running SwayLoc.



Easy install, you don't even need strut/coil compressors.

I'll probably end up getting these then thanks for the help. It's recommending the fox springs, are those that much better than the bds ones?

You mean Fox shocks I assume. These are superb!
