I lifted my 2009 Jeep Wrangler 2.5". I ended up using the AEV 2.5" Dual Sport lift as it retains a lot of the factory parts. The lift is complete except for geometry correction brackets, which you can also purchase from AEV. However I went with the Rancho RS62103 geometry correction brackets because they were one piece, and looked a little more stout. The AEV install instructions are really detailed and provide all the torque specs you need to get everything installed.
The only issue I had when installing the lift was the front brake lines and ABS wire routing. Since I installed a Dana 44 Rubicon axle from a newer model the brake lines were a different length than the ABS wires. I was afraid they were going to rub so I got a TeraFlex Front Brake Line Anchor. These mount to the lower shock bolt and keep everything tucked away, they also flex so that the brake lines don't strain.
