Lift kit help. have some parts in mind need feedback

Hi I have a 98 TJ and I'm trying to get 33' tires. I don't really go off road much. mostly on pavement and I'm not looking to spend too much.

My plan is to have a '1.25 BL 1' MML and a 2' BB

Here is what I'm about to buy

1' MML
1.25' BL or 1' BL the 1' is more expensive because it has a body mount kit but I'm not really sure what that means or if i need it

Now this is where I'm a bit confused is this 1.5' BB the same as this 1.5' spacer left kit I know one comes with shocks and the other doesn't. My question is should I buy the 1.5' BB and buy the shocks separately?
I could also go with this 2' BB with shocks

MML is fine, same one I have. I went with a zone 1.25" BL because it came with all the necessary hardware including a shifter adjustment bracket, didn't see that in the RC one.

As for the spacer lift it would likely be cheaper to piece together your own. Lots of guys get deals on the coil spacers themselves for ~$50, make/buy your own bumpstops. If you're going to be on the street you'll be fine with stock shocks. If you're gonna wheel it then look at ones of the proper length as the stock ones will be getting overextended nearing full flex.
Poverty/College Budget 2004 TJ 2.5" RC coils, 1.25" BL, M95 shocks 4.5" up 4.75" down travel front, 4.7" up, 5.3" down rear

Live around Philly or south Jersey? Come wheeling or wrenching! Look in here \/\/\/
