Trailmaster 2" Budget Boost

I received a 2" budget boost for my 04 TJ, without any shocks... I am wondering if it is ok to run my Jeep on the stock shock setup with a 2 inch lift or if I need to invest in some new shocks... Any suggestions?

It is ok but it will ride rough, just save for some 2 inch lift shocks and you will be much happier. You can definantly install the BB with stock shocks though.

How about this, if you had the Jeep Spirit, you wouldn't abuse the rest of us trying to enjoy a nice day out wheeling by bringing your brokeass broken down junkyard crap out to play where it can't handle it?[/QUOTE]

It will ride like crap and likely wear out faster, you raise the JEEP 2" you need 2" longer shocks. Basic math.
