Also where would be the best place to buy and how much was your kit?

You shouldn't have any vibes with a 2 inch lift, but every Jeep is different so it's possible. I think the longer shocks are a great idea if you're going to do any kind of off road diving.

I really like my BDS 2" coils. I am not running the FOX shocks, but look to upgrade to something like the Bilstein 5100 at some point. I stayed entry level with the shocks in case I outboard the rears, and do anything with the front.

I also run a JKS 1.25" body lift/mml....no vibes

I rather run a Rough Country coil lift without the shocks and buy Fox Shocks. You'll save $ and have a better ride.

You wouldn't be able to tell a difference between BDS coils and Rough Country's

If you go with the fox shocks, you'll want 3" front springs. The shocks internal valving is too large for 2" springs.

That said, the ride is excellent

I have the BDS 2 inch lift and like the ride with their shocks had to add a spacer to the front to level it though. But I also have a winch and bumper.

The Rough Country guy on hear said there were shipping different coils soon because of the complaints of the current springs sagging because of heavy bumpers and winches. So it should be interesting what their new coils are like.
