There are a number of good kits out there in the 2.5" range. I can only speak for TeraFlex as that is what we run in our Jeeps.
Rock Krawler are great kits as well.
The AEV kits are designed for overland so that may be a good choice for you.

Air down, plus.... When you finally do add bumpers, a winch and skid plates, the jeep will lose about an inch of lift too. Thus giving you that softer squishy feeling again!!! Lol

Keeping the lift at 2.5 or less shouldn't affect your geometry much. It may drive more like a proper Jeep! I chose the Teraflex leveling spacers, with coils off a 4 door Rubi. (on 2 dr X) No issues, and it drives like a "trail rig"!

My OME and nitrocharger shocks rides real good on the washboard and bumps when aired down properly. I would also consider the Rancho adj shocks for an improvement.
