Default Zillion Budget Boots - is one Best?

Just wondering: there are a lot of 2” budget boost kits out there. Does anyone have a favorite, or is it a case of “spacers are spacers?”

Our “Beast” WJ has aftermarket suspension. But our more recently acquired “Beauty” WJ is unmodified. It is supposed to remain “civilized,” but I’m thinking a 2” budget boost, good shocks, and 245/70R17 rubber (30.5” vs stock 29” and I’m told the largest that fits the spare tire well) would still be in the realm of “civilized” and relatively stock appearing.

Thanks.

spacers are just spacers to be honest
I have them on a WJ I brought and intend to swap them out for proper extended springs when funds allow

That’s kinda what I guessed. Some are black synthetic and some are aluminum. But they’re stiil just spacers.

Rusty's has a decent budget with coils/shocks kit I'm looking at for a decent price. Did quite alot of business with them on my XJ and was always happy.

I've had some Teraflex 2" spacers in place since 2008. I have fixed front lowers and adjustable uppers I put in when I did the spacers. Been collecting parts ever since. I have adjustable upper and lower control arms for the rear when I do a front to rear swap. These have been sitting for a while...
