There are quite a few people running this lift on the forum.
I have the 2.5" Max Travel on my two door with Bilstein 5100 series shocks and 37s. When I initially installed it I didn't put the arms in just so I could see how it handled and give feedback in a situation such as this.
It handled "OK" in my opinion, but I think you're going to be happier if you at least get front lower control arms to start with. If you can squeeze the extra money in right now I would go with the Max Travel. If you can't, get the stock mod and then come back for the other parts as money allows or you see fit. If you had a 4 door I'd say the Stock Mod is just fine.
Here are some photos of mine with only the springs, shocks, track bar, and rear bracket installed. My lack of fenders makes it look a little crazier than it really is.
The blue Jeep in this photo is on a 2.5" Stock Mod with 35" MTRs and Bushwackers and belongs to Jeep2.0 here on the forum.
Here he is on the ramp up at Tribe 4x4 after he got his gears done:
Here is another RCO customer, Fishgutz, with the 2.5" Max Travel on his Unlimited with 37" TrXus MTs on 17x8 steel wheels. He also has Poison Spyder flares.
If you've got questions about the install or anything like that let me know!
