Cheap Reliable Lift?

Hey im looking for a 2" lift (or somewhere around there). So it dont require any extra work and its not jacked up to high where my kids cant get in. I want suspension of course new leafs/shocks bolts stuff like that. But I want a reliable one... not 1 that will just level out in a couple years. Anyone know of one?

BDS is the way I would go (went), I had a Rough Country,it lasted about a year. The warranty has no fine print, bend it,break it, they will replace it FREE. You can build your own lift on line at there sight. Or if you don't mind a road trip call Southern Offroad in Alpharetta, GA 770-346-7777. They more than likely have the parts in stock. They are actually cheaper than BDS on line and no shipping.

the 1.5" kit from Black Diamond gets good reviews and my friend has one on his CJ7...i like it a lot.
it's a very middle of the road lift. good balance of quality and price. Couple that with 5/8" lift MORE Boomerang shackles and you've got a pretty good rig that should clear 31" tires.

Is the RE Lift good and reliable? I might just go with a 4" lift because I currently am running 32" tires but I drag every now and then on my flare. I think im going to do this RE 4" lift nad go with the TJ Flares. What you guys think? Good for off roading then?

Anyone know the cheapest place to get a 2" bds lift? I'm trying to find retailers online but all i can find is BDS themselves.
