I just got back in the Jeep game with a stock 1998 6 cylinder Sport; manual transmission. I admittedly know next to nothing about lifting a Jeep. I hunt out of it only and don't plan on doing any serious off-roading. I will mostly be traveling down dirt roads--some pretty rough, but I won't be seeing how horizontal I can get a wheel to the ground ;-).
I am thinking about installing an OM Emu 2.5 heavy-duty kit so that I can get 32-inch tires under the rig. I also figure I should put a body lift on while I am under there. I am not sure how much body lift to use--I assume 1.25 is good, but I am not sure. That leads me to my key question. Can anyone give me some advice on how to pull this off and what I will need? I read about dropping transfer cases, angles, brake lines, bump stops, but it is all a little out there. I understand the purpose, but I am not sure what I need.
So long question short---
If I order an OME 2.5 heavy-duty lift, will it include everything I need?
2.5" Suspension System by Old Man Emu and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH1
(And why do I see it listed as a 2 inch kit on some site and a 2.5 on others?)

Is this body lift ok? Do I need more?
JKS Manufacturing 9904 - JKS Manufacturing B1 1.25" Body Lift for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
Is there anything anyone else can recommend? Any suggestions? Other components than the ones I have selected?
Thanks in advance.
