The budget boost is a VERY popular lift and you should have no problems installing it on a TJ.

One thing to keep in mind is that people often find the budget boost is smaller than they want to be. So you may find yourself doing ANOTHER lift down the road.

There are 2 ways to look at that. You can sell the old BB (spacers and longer shocks usually) and recoop a good bit of the cash (around 225 or so) for your next lift.

The second way to look at it is that you are doing something twice, something I really don't like to do unless I have to. That is what led me to install a 2.5-3" suspension lift with new shocks and coils, along with my JKS body lift.

Your call on it though.

A BB should ride about like stock, but a bit higher. You'll also need to consider:
- longer swaybar links (quick disconnects are a good solution).
- possible driveline vibrations (even at 2", they CAN happen). Address this by either installing a t-case lowering kit or installing a motor lift. There is another, probably more 'correct' way to fix any vibes, but for 2" lift, is kinda overkill (SYE/DS/adj arm setup).

You are doing the right thing by researching first. You really want to think about what you plan to do with the Jeep. Will it be just fire trails and things like that? Will it be a mudder or a rock crawler? Your final goal will help direct you in which choices you make.
