Default Have a lift question

Just got the 2000 Cherokee back from the boys after they finished with college.
160+K used but not abused and body is still really clean for northern Michigan.

looking at doing a 2" lift. Have never done anything like that but have a neighbor who is pretty good with vehs. who I know would help.

I read somewhere that up to 2" or so the job isn't real technical.
What would the parts run and how much time would one take on the average?

also any suggestions for which parts to get since it seems there are about a billion or so of them out there for such things.

3 things for BB

Coil spacer, add a leaf or block, and new shocks. But why go 2", go 3" and you won't regret it. Should take about 5 hours to do it by yourself. Anything under 3" should be easy for a newbie.

BTW this would be under advanced tech, not a build.
