well that depends on what you want to do with your jeep...
I would not put 2" lift, but that's just my opinion.
this topic has been discussed a lot on this board. do a search on "body lift" to see what other people think
here are some search results

result 1
result 2
result 3

I would go w/ a 1" BL, and maybe a 1/2" Shackle, that should work well in conjunction w/ the 4" Susp. lift.

In the past I had a 3" body lift, I regret I ever did it. Ended up removing it and going with spring lift. You can see the gap, you have to deal with the steering column, shifters, etc. Too much of a pain for a half-butted solution.

I would recommend 1" with a MILD shackle lift also. More than that and you won't garner any respect from your buddies.
