I really hate to be a pain but could someone please list the parts I would need to order on JBA's site? Would like to print them out for reference that way I could check them off as I go. it would be very helpful. As for the install it might be better that I get a quote from OK4wd for just that and alignment. This way I can be assured that it is professionally done right. i def thank you all for your help on this.

Just lift it yourself man! There's plenty of write ups and it's fun to learn to take care of your JEEP! I was 17 when I lifted mine, plus I have the satisfaction of knowing I can trust my work.

You're heading in the right direction choosing a spring lift over spacer tho!

i would really like to do 2.5" lift. Cant really afford to do much more. Basically whatever I can get outta the OME lift would be great without breaking the bank. I would love to do my own work, just dont have any of the tools or knowledge/time. I work 12 hour night shifts and have my son during the day while my wife works. Thats the only reason why I would take it somewhere to be done.

You can just install the springs and shocks and get about 2.25-2.5
If you want more, add a top plate for 1/2 inch more in the front and one extra upper iso in the rear
Now add a 3/8 inch clevis which is free basically to the above and another upper rear iso and now you have a 3.5 inch lift
You can run 245-75-16 with any of the above.
