I'm about ready to add a couple of inches to my 98. I do not plan to run discod, nor do I plan to go higher, as this vehicle spends a lot of time on pavement as well as dirt. Should I get a 2" kit, or since I don't plan on disconnecting, is it better to just get spring spacers?
Either way, it is essentially the same thing. I recommend the BB just because it is cheap and gives the same results as a full lift kit (minus the adjustable track bars or new control arms, which aren't really necessary for just 2").

I just completed the TrailMaster kit yesterday. I didn't have to disconnect the driveshaft but did have to disconnect the lower control arms. I already had 2.5" Rancho lift springs so you might be able to do it w/out doing the control arms. Try it without and see if you can get the springs back in. If not you can always disconnect them.
