Here is my 2 cents so take it for whatever it is worth. I started out with a high school budget and just could not wait and got a RC combo lift and it actually worked pretty well on and off road. Granted, you felt every little bump on the road and it rides very rough. I am now at 5 years with it and now it is time to really get rid of it. Really only 3 good years out of it which isn't too bad for the price I paid. I am still on a college budget now, which is really not too much different haha. Check out Zone combo lifts. They are made by another trusted brand, but I am blanking on the name and someone on here will probably know. Anyway, it is supposedly a trusted brand and customer service is very good. I am replacing my RC lift for something soon and thinking Zone as my Jeep is a DD and occasional trail rider. OH! and take off those milk jugs from the stock bumpers if your state allows it. It helps with lookin a little meaner.

You've uploaded too many to WF. Go delete some or use a service like imgur to host them.

If i were you i would get a 3" lift because then you dont have to mess with the driveshafts. I got a zone 3" and with the included transfer case drop i dont get any vibrations. also it was easy to install and rides nice. Just my 2 cents.

Would I need to lower my transfer case for a 2 inch becuz in the future I am planning on gettin a 2 inch bb....also I was wondering what kind of transfer case came standard in sport tj models?

sometimes you do sometimes you dont. it varies from tj to tj. for a 2 inch you shouldn't. worst case scenario you get some vibrations and order a kit to drop the t-case. You can install one in no time too
