2" spacer lift

Anyone have just a 2" spacer lift on their ZJ? Sort of thinking about going this route...have a few questions...

-what is the max tire size allowable for this lift (thinking 16" wheels)
-I'm assuming that the 2" lift is mild enough to not require any additional mods...driveline, brake lines, etc.
-Lastly...anyone got a pic of their ZJ's with the 2" lift?

Thanks.

Check the lifted GC's thread, you should find some there. Not sure on the max size, but most people I've seen run a 245/75/16 tire. Also, I'm pretty sure no other mods are needed, but you'll want slightly larger shocks.

You need to use the search button so badly it's not even funny. There are 100megabillitrillikagillion threads asking these same questions.

Do a search, you fill find lots, here is some pics of mine with 2" lift with 265/75/16's Little bit of rubbing on the sway bar and inner fenders, nothing major, slightly rubs outer fender when sway bar is disconected. You will not need to change anything to lift 2 inches.

Nice SS, I need to get one for the WJ. I dont think they make one for my application though.

Why is there a fish finder in your Jeep?

Not hard, if you have a socket wrench and the mental capacity of a ham sandwich.

Try this thread for Max tire size, there's a nice chart that may help. I ave currently purchased my 2.25" BB from Kevins, and I have been told numerous times that I SHOUlD be able to fit 31x10.5 tires. I have also been told that no other mods are really necessary at first.

ZJTechie,

My current JEEP score: 205 (see site below)
