I want to get a 2 inch lift but I don't know if I should get a suspension or body lift? And what are some good sites to shop from

I bought a 2" suspension lift for my '06 tj. Works great, looks better, and gives you more clearance. Body lifts won't give you ground clearance. I bought mine from eBay for $70.

I believe it was Crown. All it was was 4 coil spring spacers and extended bump stops. I didn't want stiffer springs because I didn't want to affect the ride. I still needed to buy new shocks. I bought rancho 5000s and they work great.

Did you change out your steering stabilizers too?

Do you have any before and after pictures of yours?

This is the closest I have to before and after shots. I did not think to take pictures right before I lifted it.

But you can see its not as squatted down as it was stock. And I'm putting on my new 32"x11.50s this afternoon!
