Yeah, they're pretty much all the same.

Yea, but do you have a 4 speed auto with a dana 44? That seems to be a deadly vibe combo in the research I have done here... But I do appreciate your help.
No problem man, glad I could help.

FWIW, I run the 2" BDS lift and I am very satisfied with my lift's performance both on and off road .

2" BDS went on mine today, it rides just like factory, and possibly takes big bumps even better! I don't know if I can do a direct comparison though, since tires went on at the same time. That might be part of the big-bumps difference I'm noticing, since there's more tire there. But it's surely no worse than stock ride quality. I don't know how to measure the true lift either, again since tires went on at the same time. I like it, good buy!

I had a bit different of an experience than everyone else here. I put the BDS springs on my Rubicon LJ and I only gained about 1.5" up front and 2" in the rear. Now I'm not sure if thats because I have a LJ or a Rubicon or if I just got a bad set. You can read my review here http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/my...-info-1059480/

Since I got the BDS springs and Rancho shocks I can't comment on the BDS 'kit'. But my setup is a bit stiffer than stock. It worked great off road this past week when I was loaded down in Colorado, but sometimes, when I'm empty, I feel it is a bit stiff for my taste. But I can't tell you if that's because of the springs or the shocks.

I was in contact with BDS about the height gain, but I decided to just drop it and keep what I have since the stance is pretty decent. I tend to think that my Rubi was sitting higher than others to begin with. So I wouldn't worry too much about not getting enough lift. But be aware that it has happened.

I thought it attached to the axle - no? I haven't installed mine yet because I read that someone said it would hit the tub, and I'd rather live with an offcenter axle than damaged body.

With the 2" BDS lift is a transfercase drop required?

I have a 1997 TJ sport with the 4.0 Litre engine and the AX-15 manual 5 speed gearbox, Dana 44 rear axle, and needed to use a 1" transfer case drop, I used an OME one that a friend had taken off. I had terrible vibes prior to that.

You might get away with not having one if you use a LOPRO transfer case mount.

With the OME rear track bar bracket, it bolts on to the frame, well, the one we get on our side of the world does anyway.

Hope that helps

Do you think using the LOPRO mount and the UCF no body lift skid would prevent me from having vibes? I thought there was converter interference with the LOPRO mount?
