Wj Pic Request: JGCParts.com 2.5/2.0 BB

just picked up my 01 laredo. has the tow hooks and skid plates. not sure how to tell by looking whether it has the up country suspension package or not. i want to get a BB and some wheels and tires and then go driving

anyone have the 2.5" front and 2" rear budget boost kit from jgcparts.com? if so, i'd really appreciate some pics, specifically from the side on level ground. just curious how that 2.5/2 looks.

This thread is new enough I don't feel so awkward trying to revive it.

1999wjlimited, how do you like them. Any complaints? I'm also shopping for a BB and JGCparts seems to have the cheapest ones available. I figure all budget boosts are pretty much the same thing, but feedback from someone who has them would give me some peace of mind.

Thanks.

The only complaint I have is using them with rough country shocks. They ride terrible defiantly get better shocks if you can.

And from the side as requested. The BB really makes a difference in stance.

Here's mine stocks when i got it. Top pic, bottom 2.5 front 2 rear with stock shocks. 245/75/16 tires. Rides nearly the same as when it was stock except that i can hear the rear shocks when driving at slower speeds due to shocks not being long enough.

Thanks. I hadn't really planned on replacing the shocks right away. Was going to wait and see hoe bad it i with the stock ones first.
