2" Lift Options for WK

I am currently looking to put a 2" lift kit on my 06 WK. It is currently stock suspension. I do not want to do a body lift, but i do not want to spend the money for a suspension lift either. I am looking in the $400 range including instillation. I am wondering if there are options in this price range. Any suggestions, comments, or pictures are welcome. Thanks for looking!

Well with that kind of coin you are limited to a spacer kit including install. A spring/strut kit will run you $750 plus install. So if you don't want a spacer kit, then time to start saving or put that $400 towards beefier skids.

The wheel and tire sticky at the top has a lot of pictures of the different lifts (with wheels and tires obviously)

there are several choices for 2" space lifts. with installation (including a good alignment) you may still be a bit short with only $400, though it's possible

Im willing to go a little over 400 i just dont want to spend too much. and what are the advantages of spacers and the disadvantages? Will the 2" spacers even be noticeable? thanks for the feedback guys.

I have the 2" Daystar spacer lift. It let me get 32" BFG MT's underneath with only a little modification.

I didn't notice any change in the ride at all (that was really important since it's my DD).

Here is a grid with the look of the lift. (the daystar is actually 1.5" in the back and 2" in the front)

I have the Rough Country,although it technically is a 2.25" lift. I love it. Looks great,I think and no change in ride at all which was very important. I'm running 245/75/17 on stock wheel and 1.25 wheel spacers all around.

I have had my Rough County for a couple months now and love it. Kit itself was only $150, so if you install it yourself its a very cheap lift. Install will probably be around $300 unless you know someone. Im currently looking for some 245/75/17 tires which will make it the perfect height for me!
