2" Rough Country lift
 
A little background. My leaf springs are sagging a bit and after searching around I'm finding that some lift kits are cheaper than actually buying stock height springs, shocks, bushings, etc. I don't do any off roading, so nothing crazy in terms of use and that's why I'm not going any bigger on the lift. My biggest concern is, what other issues might I run into adding a 2" suspension lift? Will I need a transfer cse drop for this height? Brake line extension? What has been others' experience with this kit? Most of the other questions on the forum seem to be for lifting 4" or more, which I know needs others mods. Thanks for the help.

You shouldn't need to do anything else, especially since you don't plan to do any offroading.

Got the BDS 2" for my yj and did all the mods that BDS said to do per Installation Instructions
BDS Suspension Kit 408H Details
All went together with no problem. Only mod to it was the use of solid bar with holes in it for the trans drop, seemed stronger that just bolt spacers. Next mod will be to change the drive shaft with a slip yoke eliminator, because of the drive shaft angle, then remove the trans drop. Changing the springs only and not all the rest, is like waring one boot with a heal and one boot without a heal. Safer too ~
