Honestly, if your not doing rocks and you want it to drive well I would do a body lift and run 31's. This combo looks good and avoids the pitfalls of suspension work and can avoid regearing and driveling vibrations. I've had this on a TJ in the past and would do it again if I ever get another TJ.
If you do want the 2 inch lift I had excellent results with the Old Man Emu springs. Your stock control arms will be fine and arguably better than the bushings on the Rancho arms. If you haven't already read it the following thread will answer most every question.

I have read that, appreciate you sharing it again though. It seems that because we have Jeeps, most if not all recommendations factor in moderate off-road use and I just wanted to be sure. I really don’t care to alter the factory driving experience much and just want it higher to look better with 32” tires. Definitely want shocks for looks and ride quality, springs just to lift slightly for aesthetics.


You may have sold me on OME.


I appreciate the wide variety of expertise in the Jeep community. Thanks for helping me out!

Pro Comp 2" springs with Rancho RS5000X shocks work well too.

I think the word on the forum is that Pro Comp is no longer make 2” springs. There’s still BDS 2”
