for a 2" BL you´ll need thefollowing things:

- relocate the TC shifter
- longer fuel hoses at the fuel intake
- drop the fan shrould
- drop some plugs in the engine room
- drop the steering linkage
- perhaps you´ll have to extend the manual tranny shifter

did i forget something?

i needed 3 hours for all that (but i have an auto tranny).

a BB is much easier to install. i needed 1.5 hours for it including shocks.

here are some pics from installing the BL: click me

some pics with the BL and the gaps from the BL: click me

if you have some more questions, ask me...!

you may not have all of the things that he mentions, but i dont know what exactly you are getting from that ad, it is not very descripitive.
