Bump stops with 2" spacer lift??

I have, "as of now", a stock 1998 TJ with 1" wheel spacers that change the lugs to run the new 17 in. JK wheels and tires for a wider stance. I have purchesed a Daystar 1" body lift. I would like to add a 2" coil spacer lift and run the same shocks. Would like to do the whole set up at one time. The real question I have is will I need bump stops all the way around, just in the front or not at all. I do 90% highway 10% dirt ( I know thats SAD, but it is what it is) Also would you do the body lift or the spacer lift first, not sure it would make any difference, but thought I would ask the pros. Any input would be great, Thanks!!

yes.

you will need bumpstop extensions, not extended jounce bumpers. there is a big difference.

Is it really that big of a deal to change the shocks while I am in there? I have read where the front shocks are a real pain in the butt to get off and on!

Front shocks are easy. All the fasteners are right in front of you. The rear is a tad more difficult. You need a good length extension for the uppers and they are prone to snapping if rusted.

No the front shocks are easy peasy, you can do them anytime.

Don't do spacers. The stock springs are weak and suck when you start adding more weight to the jeep. Save yourself the hassle and get some 2" springs.
