2 inch lift on Excursion, need pics, suggestions

Being a family SUV, I don't want to go too high on the lift, just a bit higher than stock.

Does anyone have pics of theirs lifted 2" ? Also, what is the biggest / widest tires I can put on this with the lift ? Thanks in advance.

Not an excursion but this is my '04 with leveling springs running 295/75r16 (33x11.5x16)
My short girlfriend didn't have too much trouble with it, not like she does since swapping over to the 4" lift

sorry, forgot to mention it's a 2WD. I know it makes a big difference.

I'll cut you some slack on this, but I don't think I was asking for your advice on this...

We had a customer with an 8" lift on a 2WD F350 ('02) kinda silly but most of the lifted trucks around here are pavement queens anyway
Nothin wrong with lifting a 2WD if you're not into the pavement scraper look

No they have coils up front

2" on a 2wd is nothing, I'm at a 5" or 6" lift on a 4x4 and I'm the same height as the stock Fx4 trucks. Total height is about 7ft and my sister has no problem getting in.

The EGR does to your engine what smoking does to your lungs.

Remember you can always improve on a design until the EPA gets involved.

Thats what I'm saying!

Oh, coils upfront? Throw a leveling puck in there and ride on.
