couple questions

Is this lift any good? Rubicon Express Budget Boost Kits - Quadratec
Are the shocks quality? will they last? Is the lift kit itself any good? or should i wait to get the money and get a different lift? I was also thinking about getting some bigger tires, such as some 31s. will these look right with a 2 inch lift on my jeep?

i've heard good things about rubicon express products, and the shocks are pretty good too, definitely better that the stock ones. i have a bb on my tj and have off-roaded with it and it works great. I run 31's on mine and it look and works fine. my husband had a tj with the bb and he ran 32's (with minimal rub).
this is the only pic i could find of my tj, hope it helps.

this is my tj with a 2" BB and a set of 31x10.5 dunlop mud rovers. not much rub to it when wheeling.

RE's suspension lift kits are very good quality but their basic twin-tube shocks are very stiff riding. I'd either upgrade the shocks to RE's much better riding Monotube shocks or run Skyjacker Hydros (not Nitros) which are about the same cost as RE's twin-tube shocks. Or, OME (Old Man Emu) is another good choice but OME is as expensive as RE's Monotube shock is.
When you have a choice, buy American.
