Budget lift option

i dont have any experience as far as doing any modifications to cars, so forgive my ignorance, but I am excited to get into it a little bit. I want to start off with a lift for my JK so I can get either some 33's or 35's on it. I am on a VERY limited budget, but I want to get a lift that will be able to handle a some mild off road action. So that said, any reccomendations?

Here's 2 of the options Ive found so far:

Jeep 5 inch Suspension Systems

LIFT KIT, 2.5-3.5" SUSPENSION, W HYDRO SHOCKS, SKYJACKER

Feel free to give me the "you dont know what the hell your talking about" response, because I dont, but I figure if I dont ask i'll never learn, right?

Thanks guys.

Mike

Honestly you can do a spacer lift and fit 35's or even a body lift and fit 33's with ease.

This also gives me an opportunity to introduce our newest board sponsoring Vendor. thedon from Daystar has signed up to work with us. Check our their site for some great products. http://www.daystarweb.com/

Our JK has a 1 3/4 ' spacer lift and is running 35's and just put on our 1' body lift. We ran Jeep at Moab this year and it worked great and it is going up to run the rubicon trail this weekend.
Part number is a KJ09137.

My opinion.. if you can afford springs instead of spacers... go springs...

My question is... what about driveline angles in the JK??? What are teh chances of getting vibes over 2" of lift on them like on TJ? Is it better or worse?

Ive been looking over the spacer lifts a bit too. Any need to replace the stock shocks if you go that route? Or is there a big advantage to replacing the shocks?
