is there a difference?

im looking into either a skyjacker 2 inch BB or a Rubicon Express Bb to throw 31's on it. its an 01. Is there any difference in the RE lift and the Skyjacker lift other then the shocks? ive heard the skyjacker lift isnt really 2 inches and i want the full 2 inches. post pics of your BB please. Thanks

I vote you spend an extra 200 and get a zone offroad 3" suspension lift...

3" TJ Suspension System

i would but i dont really wanna go above 31 inch tires because i dont wanna have to regear or lose a lot of gas mileage. and i hate the look of 31's under a 3 inch. although the combo with the 33's is nice ...

You dont need more clearance you have all you need stock. if you really care get 1" pucks(coil spacers) and be done.

Here is mine with a 2" RE budget boost and 33's. Slight rubbing on the front until I adjusted the steer stops.

I think a 2.5 inch lift with 31's is a great combo for someone who is looking to have some fun on the weekends. Doesn't create to many drive train problems, or steering issues. The lift is cheaper, and tires are cheaper. If you get the right shocks, it will ride nicer too.

I was wondering what was the difference in BB as well. There is a RE BB kit with gas shocks. Have you seen the Crawlready BB? It doesn't come with shocks.
