2" OME Lift Kit TJ - HELPPP!

hi all,

i have a 97 Wrangler TJ Sport
6 Cyl, Manual - 5-speed
Full doors, hard top, with a stock suspension :'(

ive been looking into lift kits, and ive been going back and forth between the OME 2-2.5" lift, and the rancho 2.5" lift ( the one with the control arms and all)

Although the prices are similar on quadratec ( around $800-$900)
i heard alot of good things about OME so im probably going to go with that

I'm a bit in the dark here since ive never put larger suspension parts on anything, and you guys are THE BEST so i wanted your input!


Im particular about my jeep (straight steering wheel, no wobble, no vibration,NO Axles shifted to the side! etc etc.) , and i want to do it right the first time to TRY to avoid future problems!

i know the OME 2-2.5" lift comes with
-T-case drop
-Rear Trac bar relocation bracket
-Bump stops? (not 100% about that)
and im getting a new steering stabilizer

and im getting it aligned after installation!

Do i go with the light, medium or heavy lift?

i also want to know what else i am going to need,
upper/lower Control arms? Adj Front Trac-Bar? additional bump stops? quick disconnect sway bar links? anything else you could possibly think of!

like i said i want it done right the first time so please let me know what else im gonna need!
