A clinometer doesn't help to much when someone jacks up your jeep or tries to tow it, but sure haha. And people who care enough for their vehicle to want to protect it, and can't afford to replace it!

Well I think you are fine since you are not doing any wheelin. If you do I would get some shocks for 2-4" of lift and you can be set for future mods

Would like to note: bb to you is coil spacers right not a BL

If you're not going to be doing any off roding you'll be fine with stock shocks and stock bumpstops.
I've been running a 1.75" BB for about a year now with stock length shocks with no problems

Yes, I was hoping without wheeling I wouldn't need much else, and it's just a temporary until I get a full 3.5" SL.

Yes coil spacers, I do know most for a BL is 1.25"

If I get the bump stop extensions, what size or which would I need?

I just got a set of All terrain T/A's, same size, just put them on yesterday. I found a guy selling a pair on craigslist with 1200 miles on them. Then I just happen to find another guy with a pair, about 2000 miles on them(and they lived about 2 miles from each other), $250 all together. Mounting and balancing was $50. Very nice ride now with new tires.

well, I started the day putting on a front wheel bearing. Put it all back together, forgot the brake dust shield, took it back apart, put it on backwards, took it apart AGAIN, flipped it around, put it back together AGAIN(No more working on the jeep first thing in the morning!). Now Im on the rear track bar doing the bushings. Anyone know how to get the old ones out??? PITA! Found out that the bolt on the track bar on the frame side came loose and wore the bolt down(I realized I needed a new bolt after the old lady left for work, sitting, waiting and waiting...).

I forgot to mention, I pulled the drum just to see how things were looking, not good. Found a spring broken off from somewhere, a bracket off something with a broken piece of cable on it and the wheel seal leaking. I glad I only paid $700 for it. My daily driver is turning into a winter project real quick.

installed 2 water pumps and 2 new belts

What a silly anger building day.
So my water pump was leaking through the weep hole. Done hundreds of water pumps in my day.. So I pull the shroud on my 97 2.5 TJ.. simple job.. NOT
Find out the bracket that holds the adjustment pulley is bolted to the motor mount. Well be being lazy try to bend it away to remove the super simple bump.
Bad move- bent the bracket and in so doing when I tightened it up to the new water pump it cracked the water pump.. Ok.. tried to fix bracket.. no good- down to Jeep dealer, new bracket another new water pump from autozone.
Fun getting new bracket on- but it works. Then I put it all back together.
Start up and the engine needs to burp some air. it does but never gets warm.
What the heck - pull the thermostat has one of those failsafe types that locks open if it gets too hot. So another stat more coolant. Put back together then the coolant that leaked on to belt is making the belt squeal like no tomorrow.
Spray it down with starting fluid to dry off. Something in the spray makes the belt all gooey. Get new belt. works for a while then screaming again. I spray more, then my Alternator stops working. What is going on here ? Another new belt after cleaning and cleaning the pulleys and belt. Turns out the starting fluid that I had had some type of lube in it that kept gooing up my new belts. Well walked away from it for a few days- said some prayers.
OK 2 water pumps, 2 belts many gallons of coolant. allot of moaning and its done. So much for a quicky water pump change. Never ever had that happen before, must be getting old..

Not trying to be negative...but I feel my "LUCK" is about the same as yours...so if it is anything besides a top, speakers, radio, lights, bumpers or seat covers...I go to the Pros...Seat time much better to me than wrench time...I do "BABY" the Jeeps 'cause I want them to last forever!!!!
