Body lift

I've put the leveling kit on and now wanting a little more. Contemplating a 2" body lift. I've got a straight drive other than the shorter stick what are some of the pros and cons. Any advice would be greatly appreciated before I plunge in to something I may or may not want to do .

I think you would need the bumper relocation bracket, regardless if you have a 1 piece or not. Behind the 1 piece plastic is a metal bumper that is fastened to the frame and sits right inside your 1 piece bumper cover, this would need to be moved up so your plastic 1 piece cover would still fit onto the bumper.
I have a one piece bumper, added a 2" lift, and never lifted my steel bumper. I unfastened the bottom of the plastic bumper and never reattached them, the plastic will stretch over the steel still. Makes it so the stock skid still fastens in place. Easy peasy.
All I did was unfasten all those lower mounts below the steel bumper and lifted. It was that simple.
The skid is fastened to the steel bumper, on the two lower tabs you have pictured above.
