I might pick one of these up, we all came to the conclusion that I could run 32s as long as I have extended bump stops correct?

so the kit says 2.5 inches of lift, but does it really net more like most other kits?

2.5" would be plenty of lift for 33x12.50's with the right bumpstops and wheel backspacing.

Does Rough Country have LJ specific spring rates for the 2.5" kit? Us LJ guys carry more weight in armor, hard top, etc and some (like me), still want the forward rake for loading down with gear.

Awesome! I'm also doing a writeup so yours will be from stock correct? If so I'll do mine comparing to stock & w/ BB & Ranchos.
