Budget Lift Recommendation

I'm thinking about getting a 2"-2.25" budget lift. Does Anyone have any recommendations for which to get, or which not to get? Thanks

There pretty much all the same as far as the spacers go, just watch out that some people call a 1.75" spacer a 2" - mainly just make sure you get good shocks with your kit (if your getting a kit with shocks )

The 4wheelcustoms BB posted by Rocky529 is 2.25" as advertised. x2 on the shocks.

As far as the spacers, get whichever you prefer. I have Skyjacker, but they're not quite 2." I have the skyjacker hydro shocks and I'm very happy with them. I bought their kit but the spacers and shocks seperately aren't really much more expensive. The SJ shocks are fairly cheap and a very nice ride. Better than stock at least. If you have money to spend, then apparently OME is the way to go. But they are pricey at over $70 per shock.

ive been looking around and would have to agree the 2.25" kits on 4wheelcustoms are the best way to go. i think im going to be getting the skyjacker kit with the hydro shocks.
