the amount of lift really does not have anything to do with tires rubbing. A properly set up 4" lift with 35x12.5" tires will rub just the same as a 2.5" lift.

Choose your tires wisely, many people that are new buy the wrong tires and end up with a rough ride. Look for C rated tires and 17" wheels. A 2.5" lift will be a better fit and cost you way less than...

Most vehicles that have been built in the last 15 years don't have a single grease point on them. Should not be a big deal telling the tech not to grease anything.

How much does that 392 weigh? I am looking for a motor to use on a project. Would like something light like under 500 pounds. The lighter the better.

Daystar is fine. 1.75" should be enough but if you want 2" go for it. You can also get coil spacers from Synergy if you want a better known brand with the JK crowd.
