Lift Kit for 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I've been wanting to get a 2' lift kit or a 2' leveling kit, but I'm worried that it won't look good with the P255/65R17 BFG Long Trail tires I have on there right now? Also, I'm not sure whether I should get a "lift kit" or a "leveling kit"? Or what's the difference between the two?? I'm also new to adding to my Jeep so I could use all the advice I can get. Any advice or knowledge would be great.



Please help!

Lift kit lifts both the front and the rear, and makes it level-er. Leveling kit only lifts the front to match the rear. Rough Country makes a low-dollar lift, as does Rocky Road Outfitters...and a few others, like Daystar.

I say get the 2" Lift Kit, go big or go home right! Should look fine with the 255 65's.
