Nice write up and the parts don't look too garrish.

Either way you go, figure on some or many of the following components needing replaced or addressed in some way: longer front brake lines, extended sway bar links front and rear, Slip Yoke Eliminator, double cardan rear drive shaft, bumpstop extensions, new shocks, adjustable upper and lower control arms, welding reinforcement to various mounts, adjustable track bars in front and rear, and a rear track bar bracket. Regearing axles & speedo correction, brake and steering upgrades to accommodate larger tires. You may also consider upgraded skid plates to improve clearance and protect vital components, like the oil pan. Possibly one of the most important but overlooked upgrades is roll cage improvements.

Good shocks of the proper length for the lift height & travel requirements, with proper bumpstop extensions.

I agree. And you also should tell us what you are looking for in the so called "kit". If you just want the springs i would look into Savvy/Currie. But to answer your question. Yes you can get the "kits" without the shocks. Depending on the brand you get it will come in a certain color. Or you can try looking into OME. They have had good reviews on their 2.5" lift.
