Yes you should be at 4". At 4" you would need extended sway bar links, A-Arm spacer. You would probably also need adjustable front track bar and it would be a good idea to get adjustable control arms. You might also need a xfer case drop if you have vibration problems. Also new extended shocks.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

if you don't want to spend a lot of money, sell your 2" spacers and get a 2-3" lift. here's a guideline of what you'll need.

That diagram doesn't mention anything about the Pitman Arm. Shouldn't you have a drop Pitman Arm too? My 4" RC Kit came with one.
