BDS 2" lift..

Decent lift? I'm not looking for a top of the line lift or anything. My KJ is just a beater for me, not a long distance DD. I'm just wanting to lift be able fit 245/75/16.

Its decent BUT with it you still have to buy front shocks and the ones that come standard with it for the rear are cheap
For the money you'll spend on buying it, then upgrading shocks you're in the ball park of doing a Ironman or OME full spring kit

The way I read it you reuse your front shocks. Am I wrong?

Not sure why you would want to reuse stock shocks
If over 40,000 or so they are ready to be replaced anyways
I replaced mine back in early 05 ( when I did my first lift) with 20,000 on them and they were done
Using stock shocks would only wear out the new springs faster since they would be the weak link in the suspension

Because it's a beater that won't see another 20,000 miles if that. My TJ hasn't seen 30K miles in 6 years. Now If I get it apart ant the shock is obviously shot, I'll replace it. I put cheap skyjackers on the TJ.. No complaints.
