Easiest way for me cause at the time I didn't know much about lifting anything was to buy the RC 3in lift kit and a 2in bl to go with it. I fit 33's really nice and was under 500 bucks. I still have the bl but the lift lasted 4 years before I decided to go soa. My jeep use to be a reliable weekend warrior.

[QUOTE=doublins;15539665]I always get people coming over and saying things like "I wish I knew how to do that," etc- but they don't realize- at some point I didn't know how to do it either- I had to figure it out.[/QUOTE]

You may or may not need bump stops with that 2" BL. Without that BL I'd say yes for sure. But with a 2" BL you might get away without them. It will be close. I'd put the lift on and then SLOWLY flex it out to see how far you can stuff the tires.
I have 33's with flat fenders up front and TJ flares in the rear and no longer need the bump stop extensions. The stock bump stops are enough. I'm guessing that you might slightly rub at full flex, but it's hard to tell how much extension of the bump stops you'll need. It might only be like an inch.
If you want to order up some bump stops to be safe then go fo it. But going with a longer bump stop than needed will only serve to limit flex. That's the only reason I say to measure after you get the lift and get them later.
try this one more time, the 36R I suggested are a 5 pack leaf, I ran the 14F for a lont time in the front...I nose dived, the 14 are a 4 pack, The 36R ar a good 3" if not more, they dont advertise this way, but with those and your shackles same as me, 5/8 greasables, you will get over 3" for sure and have a far superior spring....
the difference being this.... your RC, BDS, RE, will sag most definately, well maybe not BDS, but the others for sure, my OME I run all gear, kids, spare, and still sit level.... ran them SUA for years and now SOA and still hold up well...
Started with some rust repairs ended in a SOA...
My re don't sag at all unless I have my extremely over weight friend (355 lbs) in the back with 2 other people. I couldn't be happier with my lift it's been on for 2 years since I bought the jeep and 3 years before that and they still have the same amount of lift. And they flex amazing. I would buy these again in the blink of an eye.
