Just get the BDS 2" spring and shock package. Many of us have it and it is one of the best riding mid priced 2" lifts you can get.

How much was it & where did you get yours?I cant just get a "package" right? I am debating between EMU,BDS & Zone.I thing BDS is between EMU & Zone for quality.Yeah I know Zone is made by BDS but you cant beat BDS on warranty.
I really think I should do it right & just go for the EMU but just looking for other options.Theres sooo many out there.

I was told by BDS that the shocks didn't have the lifetime warranty, but the hardware did.

Hmmm as I figure it Im going to spend about $660.00 for 4 BDS springs & shocks The EMU is about $790 & EMU includes the bump stop kit .So In reality the EMU isnt really all that much more.Now Zone on the other hand is several hundred less.

Excluded from this warranty are the finish of the product and mounting bushings.

There is nothing to hate. Shocks are a wearable item that will wear out. No one is going to offer a lifetime warranty for a part like that.

My son and I just installed BDS 2" lift springs w shocks on my 04 TJ. I did get drive line vibs at 25-30 mph but it was an easy fix by lowering the tcase 3/4". Rides, handles and looks great! Was going to do pucks, but musta been good this year, Santa came through! Will update the profile pic soon.
