LJ - high steer and frame notching?

I recently bought a Waggy 44 for the front of my LJ - it came with crane knuckles and high steer (TRE mounted on top). Has anyone done this and what lift were you working with? Reason I ask is I wish to keep the LJ pretty low (reduce it down to 2" lift if I can), but now thinking about it perhaps a frame notch is in my future.

So if I could get an idea of lift versus how much frame notching needed it would be very helpful in the planning process. I realize in the end that all Jeeps are different and I'll just have to do it to find out, but at least some experience from others is appreciated.
