Lift kits & mechanics to do it in Long Island?

I am considering lifting my Jeep 2 1/2 inches, I am not even sure what kit to buy, but I am already thinking about who will do the job. My mechanic as good as he is, thinks I am a little nuts lifting the Jeep. He may be right.

If you guys have any experience with lift kits, can you recommend me one? Someone told me Rough Country is one of the best. And if you know a reliable mechanic that does this kind of work, please let me know.

Can you also give an idea about prices?

RC is far from on of the best. Who ever told you that has never wheeled their rig. I personally like Zone for cost and quality (they are part of BDS Suspension one of the upper tier bolt on companies) As for doing it. DIY is the way to go get you self the tools and a buddy over and have at it.

Thank you for educating me about this, I have been looking at the different kits that are out there and the more I look the more confused I get.
For example, I see kits with spacers, others with springs and other with springs and shocks. What is the difference?

If all I want is just to lift my Jeep more for looks than for off trail driving, wouldn't the spacers do? I still have the stock tires and I was planning on keeping them at least until I need new ones.

As far as doing it myself, I am not as young as you guys are but If I can get someone I can hire to help me I'll be willing to give it a shot.

Then, to make matters worst, now I am looking at spacers, I would like to buy the Spidertrax 1.5 spacers, for a more aggressive look.

I thought after the CAI, Superchips and Muffler, I was done spending money on the Jeep. This is an addiction!!!!

I just moved up here to Far Rockaway and I like to do most of the stuff myself and only seek someone else/mechanic if I can't do the job. I have a heavy bumper and winch on the front right now so I'm looking to lift the front a bit and add the JKS disconnects. Any thoughts on the front lift I might need to balance or level it out?
