spacer question
I hope I made a good buy. I ordered these off the internet this weekend. Fat Bob's Garage Shopping Cart Jeep 2" Poly Spacer Lift Kit TJ ZJ

Can anyone tell me if I will need anything else for it to be done properly ie shocks or anything.. By the way I am a noob to the whole Jeep thing. Thanks it is a great website.

I installed those on my jeep they are easy to install and you really don't need new shocks or anything I never put 2" bump-stop extensions on mine either. You will bottom out your shocks if you disconnect your sway bar. So longer shocks are a good upgrade in the future. I wasn't satisfied with amount of lift I got from them but I'm pretty sure my springs have sagged from age I have a 99' with 80,000 miles. I picked up some v8 zj springs the other day from a salvage yard I plan on replacing the spacers up front with the zj springs but I'm going to wait and get longer shocks first. The spacers are a good start it gave mine a little better stance than stock and I didn't notice any change in the ride quality.

Here's pics of mine completely stock and then with the 2" budget boost.

Thanks for the reply. This will be my first mod on the jeep. Again, thanks
