I have heard that the currie or metalcloack are pretty good lifts. Most of the forum goes with the 4.25 Zone lift but that may be to hight for your needs. You should only need springs and shocks since it's only 2.5. Hopefully some other folks can help out. Is your LJ a rubicon? Also, what size tire do you plan on using.

any lift should include springs, shocks, and bumpstop extensions. at 2.5" lift you should also consider a rear track bar relocation bracket plus an adjustable front track bar or reinforce the axle side bracket and drill a new mounting hole to center the axles and longer sway bar links. if you dont like the "return to center" feeling of the steering wheel you can add adjustable lower control arms so you can adjust your caster.

I'm a big fan of BDS springs and Rancho 5000x shocks, but the springs dont come in .5" sizes, just 2" or 3".

2.5" springs = Skyjacker, Rough Country, Rubicon Express, Freedom Offroad. Maybe someone else makes some too. I'd go with Ironhead Jed's suggestion.

What are your other plans? Tire size, how and where will you offroad if at all will help.

If you plan on 35’s then you may want to step up to something like the metalcloak mentioned above.
