i got a JKS adj trackbar, JKS quick discos, mx6 shocks, rancho ss rear shock mount kit, and OME HD springs it was just a tad over 1k with shipping.....but you get what you pay for. There are cheaper ways to get 3" but this rides great and Kolak is awesome to deal with. I reseached a lift for about 2 years before i got it. could not be happier. If you PM or email him tell him what your trying to achieve he can help you out.
$1000 and you are still on stock control arms and no a-arm spacer? Yikes
Im at 4" with adjustable front lower CA's, adj track bar, quick discos, a-arm spacer, and steering stabilizer for a tad under $700.
To the OP: if you are set on only 2", stick with the pucks and pick up a decent set of shocks. Pucks will run you about $150 new, or much cheaper used. Your ride quality is going to be dependent 100% on the shocks you choose. You can spend anywhere from $150 - $600 on shocks.
3" lifts are pretty much worthless IMHO. You can easily go up to 4" for the same price as any of the 3" kits out there and have a more complete setup (most 3" kits dont come with CA's)
Compare IRO's 3" kit to Zone or Rough Country X-series 4" kits. By the time you add an adj track bar, CA's, a-arm spacers, and a decent set of shocks to the IRO kit, you are already over $1000. Zone comes with all that stuff for $699 (retail from their website) and the RC-X kit comes with even more for $750 (retail from their website) As I said above, I got my RC-X kit with a SS added to the order, shipped to my door for under $700 from a vendor on Jeepforum.
Lifting just 2" will definitely be the cheapest option. But if you ever plan on going higher than that (everybody ends up wanting too) save the money and go right to 4" or higher.
