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.

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.

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.
