Question about skyjacker spacer lift

I have an '06 wrangler and i've been thinking about going with the skyjacker 2" coil spring spacer lift. I've searched for threads looking for this answer,but i haven't found this exact question. If do go with this type lift will i have to do anything with the front torsion bar links? I'm not looking to get more articulation out of my jeep because i don't plan on rock crawling any time soon i just want a bit more ground clearance. I apologize if this has been asked before.

Our TJs don't have torsion bars but no, nothing will have to be modified to install a 2" spacer lift. You MIGHT have to drop the transfer case skidplate 1/2" with spacers (stacked washers work) & longer bolts perhaps if the 2" lift causes a minor drivetrain vibration but that's about it.

You will have to adjust the toe-in and straighten the steering wheel after installing the spacers but both of those are extremely and non-technical on a Jeep. Here's how... Basic Jeep Front End Alignment

And a big welcome to WF.

No you don't need to get a lift to put those size tires on.
You might probably be good with a 33inch tire..

But you might need wheel spacers for the 10.50 wide tire... you will just have to see if it rubs or anything first.

I had 31 10.50's on stock rims and they rubbed just a little at full lock. When I bought my soft 8's with 4'' backspacing they didn't rub anymore.

You shouldn't have any problems with 31's on stock rims I wouldn't go any taller without at least a BB.

33" tires are too tall for an unlifted TJ if you do anything more strenuous than a perfectly smooth street. And no need for wheel spacers for a 10.5" wide tire. Heck even the stock TJ Rubicons which are unlifted came with that size (metric equiv. to 31x10.50) tire.

I test drove a '02 sahara a couple of years back and it had 31x10.50's on it but i didn't know if they were factory tires or not,so i did some measuring yesterday and i kinda figured with a set of aftermarket wheels with less backspacing i might be able to go with 31x10.50's. Thanks guys
