Question Budget Boost needs?

Those of you with a 2" BB. Did you need to add extended brake lines or make adjustment to the track bars? What about shocks? My son in law is buying a BB and we were wondering what else he might need to purchase. His boost has only the spacers and stops. Thanks for any info. buhttp://img218.imageshack.us/img218/7563/1002102editedez8.jpgmp

i would buy some longer shocks with a BB. with longer shocks my ride became much more comformtable tahn with only the spacer pucks.

if you havethe right tools instaling a BB dioesnīt take more than 2 hours.
if you do it with a normal jack and jack stands it will take +3 hours.

I've got a BB with longer shocks. I installed it without knowing my way around the suspension (or the jeep for that matter) and I wheel it all the time. Works great. Good jump off point.

but let me say:
a BB isnīt bad, itīs better than the stock suspension if you have some other shocks, but if you have enough money buy a real spring suspension. the ride is much better than with a BB.

most people (like me) first buy a BB and then a spring suspension some times later. if you have such a plan, save the money and buy a spring suspension some times later.
