Is the 2" for your 99 XJ or is it for a WK 05+ ? This is the WK fourm, a mod will probably move your thread to the right fourm. If it's for a XJ, check out the XJ sticky for lifts : http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/xj-lift-setups-read-first-post-before-replying-45602/,

dont be sorry for other people thinking you are dumb. apparently no one has any good information on a write up but maybe you could find the instructions for one of the lifts and see if you have any questions that someone could help you with. if your mechanically inclined and have worked on your own vehicles before i wouldnt be too worried about jumping into a 2" boost. if the instructions arent on a mfg's website perhaps you could email them and ask for them saying you are interested in purchasing but would like to know what kind of work is involved.

punctuation...meh

Nobody is dumb here , I was just making sure he was posting in the right section based on his post count and vehcile make. Sorry if I caused any hard feelings!!! I'm more than happy to help , here is a link that includes pictures on how to do it. It was done on a commander but they both share the same suspension. Good luck and let us know how it goes

Try this, its the writeup from rough country for their 2 inch lifts. I dont think a spring compressor is required according to their instructions, but it may be needed.

I didnt use a spring compressor at all for me. The only thing that caught me off guard was you have to shorten the bolts on the top of the strut. Otherwise they will bottom out on your spacers bolts/studs.
