Default MQ lift options

Im wanting to lift my MQ duel cab but want to know what people are doing and like/dislike about what they have.

My requirements

*Safe 2" lift (dont over stress drive shafts and create problems with drive line)
*Comfort - fix up the firm/fidgitie ride the MQ has
*I dont really tow or load the back up, but do have a steel bar and plan to fit a winch

From what I've read, to keep the front CV joints in normal alignment you get new upper control arms. Are you a member of the MQ triton facebook page? There is quite a bit of discussion on lifts there.

New upper control arms will not maintain the factory drive shaft angles unless you also fit a diff drop kit.
