The time has come (to get more lift!!)

Well finally the time has come! I have the money to do a new lift this spring. Right now I have those crappy Pep Boys shackles with 31x10.50x15 A/T's on 15x8 chrome Pacer bullethole rims. Well as most of you already assumed, the ride completely sucks with the shackles. The only reason I've been running them the past several months is because I haven't done much wheeling and I have been broke! haha. Well anyways, I'm finally getting to do a suspension lift. I'm going to stick with my 31x10.50's because I have a 4cyl and I do not want to regear. I am thinking about going with a 2" BDS, 2.5" Skyjacker, 2.5" Trailmaster, or 2.5" Rancho. On top of that, I will probably do a 1 or 2" body lift, just because I like the looks of added tire/fender clearance. I'm sure this has been asked over and over but search is down...what is the best suspension lift kit for YJ's on 31s? I will probably go with the 2" BDS with a 2" body lift. Will I have any other mods to do such as driveline, etc? Anyone have any pics of a YJ with a 2-2.5" susp. lift with a 1 or 2" body lift on 31s??? Thanks.

I'd go with the BDS springs. They hold their strength really well and are an excellent spring for a springover.(just incase you want more later on)
With a 2.5" you shouldn't have to worry about modifying your driveline any.
If you want more tire clearance try stopping at a 1" body lift and adding some tj flares.
