JK Suspension on a TJ + 2" BB??

Hey guys, quick question(s).

I bought a full 2012 Stock JK suspension from a guy and installed the front springs. If I do the whole conversion (Shocks & springs), and put 2" Spacers from Teraflex, will I have to get BS Extenstions and brake lines and all that?

My coworker (who seems to know what he's talking about) says I might have to do that, but I hope not.

I just bought 4 coil spacers from Teraflex, no shocks or BS extensions.

If you stack coil spacers on top of JK suspension in a TJ, you're going to tend up with 4-5 inches of lift. Gonna have to eitehr drop the t case or get a SYE/ CV drive shaft, too. Definitely goin to have to bumpstop/limit strap since the stock JK shocks don't account for that extra 2" of lift, but mostly has to d with what size tire and when you get any sort of interference articulating the suspension. Brakelines will have to be extended if you wheel it at all.
Poverty/College Budget 2004 TJ 2.5" RC coils, 1.25" BL, M95 shocks 4.5" up 4.75" down travel front, 4.7" up, 5.3" down rear

Live around Philly or south Jersey? Come wheeling or wrenching! Look in here \/\/\/
