Lift it if you want 2" is really easy to do in all suspension add a leaf in the rear and since its a 2wd torsion bar you can key and crank all you want that will fit 31"s just fine. Get a decent all terrain and it will go thru dirt fine as long as you don't get a tire off the ground in the butt. Limited slip will help that.
I would rather just go a full 3" bl. I dont lf i want to mess with the torsion bars especially 2". Not sure if i have it is limited slip or not. How do i determine that? Axle Code Is 97. If i am not mistaken that is 4.10s
