Question about putting BBs on with Struts?

Hi there everyone. I was going to sell my Jeep but I decided to keep her for now. Bought her in 07 off lease with 29k on it and kept it stock so far and i have 88K on it now. I am looking into a two inch BB Leveling Kit and I am going to put some KYB Gas Shocks front and rear on considering there still stock. Is there anything else I should do to it? or are these two thing good?

It will sit high in the front since the jeep is only raked about 1" in the front. Quit being a women and buy all four. just my 2 cents

yea, go with all 4. definetly worth it! im going to go with the rough country 2" BB, they come with the rough country 8000series hydro shocks (i believe). gives the WJ better clearance (that 2 inches with 31s really helps), and everyone knows... a stock jeep just looks funny!

I am going with all four. I said i was doing A TWO INCH BB leveling kit. Read the words in my original post. I am right in how i worded it. And I was just wondering if the struts are too short with a 2" BB lift?

struts? your jeep doesn't have have struts, but if you are referring to the shock length, stock length will work, but it would be better to get the proper length shocks.

says he bought it IN 07.... but you're right, he still may be in the wrong place.

Also, OP: a leveling kit usually refers to spacers you would add to only the front or rear to level the vehicle to level the rake, which is why you were getting corrected.
