Upgrade suspension and lift 93 YJ

This is my first post though I found this forum a year ago when I bought my jeep. Fantastic info here! I can explore it for hours.I've already upgraded my charging system with 1/0 welding cable and larger cables to starter etc when I swapped my old kirkland battery for a Diehard Platinum. My next project will be to upgrade my suspension with a 2 inch lift. Its between the Zone or BDS kit.
My question is... Do I need to do worry about the driveshaft angle with such a small lift? Thanks in advance.

Welcome.

You may want to get a transfer case drop just in case. Every jeep reacts differently to being lifted. The zone lift is the little brother to the BDS. Don't rule out old man emu. They're great.

Thats what I was thinking.. just in case. The OME looks great. I'm also thinking of building a kit. Ome springs, biltstien shocks... nuts and bolts. Cash is a factor but I hate to do anything 1/2 way. Thanks Anticanman!

I highly suggest piecing together a lift. You get the best pick of every component. And who doesn't want the best?

Pick a tire size and go from there. Tire size dictates everything.
