2in lift

So I just got a deal on a new in box lift...
Shocks and coil spacers.. I am new to the jeep mods and wondering is there anything else I have to change on the tj or can I just put in the kit and drive???

It's my understanding that a front end alignment is needed as the increase in lift will change the angle of your front end. There's a great DIY write up somewhere on here if you don't want to take it to a pro but even so it's far cheaper than replacing a pair of tires in a year or so.

You need bump stop extensions so you dont kill your fenders, shocks, or over compress your springs. I would add a rear track bar bracket to help recenter the rear axle.
