Dextreme Tons of TJs are out there with 2"bb and stock shocks. But its better to get longer shocks.

doclouie Whenever a lift is put on a Jeep the shocks should be changed, but a 2" BB the answer is maybe. If it is not going to see hard off road I would leave it alone, but you must adjust for bump stop extensions. If done right the answer is yes, but many do not do anything with a 2" BB and get away with it.

UnlimitedLJ04 yes, you'll need longer shocks. you need to make sure proper bumpstop extensions were also installed. adjustable/quick disco front sway bar links will also be beneficial.

Are new shocks neccesary for a 2 inch BB lift?

Hey guys, I recently bought my tj about a week ago and the PO had installed a 2 inch BB spacer lift and left the stock shocks. My question is do I need to buy shocks to accommodate the lift or is it alright to run stock shocks?
