Budget 2" KK lift??

Is this a good option to fit bigger tires (235/75/16 or 245/75/16 BFG AT tires)? I need to get larger shocks too, right?

A 2" lift will allow 245/75/16 with little to no rub at all. There is no good budget lift as they wear down the coils fast and make the ride harsh. I did what everyone else does and got a budget lift and installed it. If i could i would have just saved my money for a real lift like the JBA lifts. If you MUST go with a budget lift, the best is probably Rock Krawler with the exception of the bolts, they don’t ship with the correct grade of bolts and you should get stronger bolts from the hardware store for this lift. Yes longer rear shocks are needed.
