    2" lift

    Well ive been searching 2" lifts for the past couple of days and i cant decide between these 2 decisions..the 2 ive been looking at are the rough country 2" spacers for $250 and the 2" BDS suspension lift for $450. Im in highschool so i dont have alot to spend and i wont be doing extreme off roading since it's my daily driver.

    Which one should i get? Im kind of leaning towards the rough country spacers since im broke but have heard better reviews for the BDS lift..basically here are my questions:
    -Could i get by with just the RC spacers to clear 31's without trimming?
    -Would i have to buy other parts besides the kit (stabilzers and such)?
    -I've heard many people say the BDS lift actually give about 3"..would it break in over time or would i have to buy stabilizers or anything like that?
    -A list of everything i will need?

    Plus any additional details i will need to know..thanks in advance

    Sorry im so stupid , im new to this stuff, ill try not to annoy too many people..by the way i have a 2003 laredo

    order the springs from fat bobs garage $220 shipped. order some NICE shocks- bilsteins preferably, throw the 31s on there and no matter what youll be cutting a little bit of plastic. the BDS springs give about 2 1/4" lift, mine has settled to 1 3/4" in the front- but i think that is because my coil isolators need to be replaced.

    nothing else is NEEDED with a 2". you will probably want a steering stabilizer- $50.

    fatbobsgarage.com has better prices for spacers and the bds. No you will not get 3" from the bds springs. 31s are the generally accepted size tire for 2" of lift. I would do more research. Try searching through some threads here, most of this has been covered a couple times in the last couple of days.

    My personal opinion is to get the spacers and some ok shocks for now. You will probably want to upgrade to more lift before too long, so might as well save the money now.
