Pro Comp 2 inch coil lift or RE budget boost?

I have a 2001 TJ sport 4.0L Auto. I want a 2 inch lift and i want to throw some 31's on. like the Pro comp lift because it comes with coils. But if i got that would i have to drop the t-case or do anything like that? its either that lift or the Rubicon Express budget boost. But if i got the pro comp woould i needanything else?

ProComp's springs are fine it's the ES-3000 shock that comes with their 2" lift that most people hate for its too stiff ride. I had ES-3000 shocks on my TJ for a few months until I couldn't stand their stiff ride any longer and trashed them. RE's twin-tube shocks are every bit as stiff. RE's monotube shock rides fine, so do other shocks like the Skyjacker Hydro that are fairly inexpensive. Most like the OME Nitrocharger too but it's a bit stiffer riding than the RE Monotube and Skyjacker Hydro.

With regards to the TC drop, with 2" most do not have vibrations but some do. With a 2" lift and there are a number of them, all you need are coils and shocks.

I just finished the install on a 2" skyjacker BB with new 7000 series shocks. Pretty easy, took a while, several interruptions. Used stock coils. Runnin Wild Country MTX 32/11.5/15. Ran the tires stock, just wanted a little boost.

I went with the Pro Comp stage2 4" kit and it came with the ES9000 shocks, WAYyyyy better than ES3000.
