You will find that youll want them very soon after getting the BB. It's very necessary. I got the skyjacker 2.25" BB with hydro shocks and I love it.

Kevin's makes a 2.25 spacer, I got the IRO 2inch spacer. With Black Diamond Shocks. I'm Happy with it.

Get shocks. The ride will suck no matter what without them.

i have a bb off of ebay from fat bobs garage and i have stock shocks but need longer ones, i went off road with my buddy and i get almost no flex with the stock shocks. what shocks are recommended for a 2"? or is there a set i can get right now that will still be good for a 3.5" lift when i get it so i dont need to buy multiple sets.
