2" BDS lift kit installed

I just completed the installation of my 2" BDS lift kit and I think it is a lot better. The ride is much improved and it goes off road much better as well. I have 31s on it and this combination seems to be very good together. Below are the before and after pictures. It doesn't look like alot but it is a pretty noticable change in my opinion without going sky high or something like that with it. Not sure what I'm gonna do next. Probably a winch...any suggestions?

It looks great! I'm assuming they are the same tires from before pic, they look just right. Good job.

Yes, same tires as before.
Thanks, the work was pretty easy but breaking the rusty bolts loose was very time consuming!

Looks really good.
Altho your Jeep is much prettier than mine, I am planning on the same thing... a 2 inch lift. I have 31's and have done some minor fender trimming, but still need more lift. My leafs are laying flat right now, so I should see a noticeable change!.
Yours looks just right. Great stance.

Thanks Scott! This is my first Jeep so I'm learning as I go. For my 2" lift I had to move my shift boot back about 1/2" to clear the shifter going into 2nd and 4th gear. Also, one thing not mentioned in the directions is to lengthen your drag link about 3/8" to get your steering wheel straight agian. The lift will not affect your front toe but will change the orientation of your steering wheel while driving straight. Pretty easy project except for breaking the rusty bolts loose. Good luck and have fun!
