LCOG shock and spring combo

I just want to see what you guys come up with. I want the lowest amount of lift with shocks to match. so far I've come up with:

Teraflex 1.5" performance leveling kit with bilstein Yellows
Teraflex 2.5" lift kit without shocks and Fox 2.0 shocks
Teraflex 2.5" lift kit without shocks and King shocks
Teraflex 2.5" lift kit without shocks and bilstein 5100 series
Teraflex 2.5" lift kit with shocks(Teraflex)
OME 2" suspension system

I'm trying to keep the springs under 3" so options are somewhat limited on the springs. I don't mind paying for quality so as long as the shocks match the springs(length) I don't mind paying if I like the idea. NO SPACER LIFTS....I've got spacers(purchased already installed on my jeep) and they are coming off ASAP!!! Let's see what you can come up with!

Here get these fenders and run 37's stock: Jeep Wrangler JK Tube Fenders, Bumpers and Body Armor

No way you can get a better COG.

Now wanna get real flexy with the fenders, link the front and rear. Next get some of these: KING 2.0" Coil Over Shocks

I should have some used 5100s coming my way soon, depending on your application I would recommend (sp) BDS because of their no fine print warranty. You break it, they replace it. Another brand to consider is Rock Krawler, 2.5 max travel kit (I believe). You can npair that kit with the bilstein shocks. The cool part about the RK kit is that if you ever decide to go bigger (54" claws on a low lift), all of their kits are "upgradeable" to the next lift level. I just had a friend put one on and loves it.

I know coilovers are the way to go, but this is still a DD so I don't really want to add the coilovers yet.
