If your looking for only a 2.5" lift for a YJ than I'd suggest the RE standard 2.5" lift.

I put the 2.5" Rubicon Express lift on my rig with new greasable shackles front and rear for around $750. It was a complete package and I really like it. I didn't use the clocking kit for the t-case tho. Took me 14 hours to install it by myself (on my b-day last year, Jan 15 2007) but I spent several of those hours cutting leaf spring bolts/bushings and had to replace a few rotten brake lines when I put the extensions on.

I bought a BDS 2.5 inch used for $250 with 1 inch shackles and have been very happy with the result.
