Lift kit

Looking to add a lift to my 08 jku. I want to keep cost low (being on a budget) I wanted a 2.5". I do a little rocks Mudd and some sand. So any advice would be great, thanks

If you want to keep cost down. Get a budget boost and some 33's. You will be able to tackle some $hit with a budget boost and 33's. Pretty decent actually.

X2, have had this lift on for a week now and it is outstanding. Ride is better than stock the shocks are unreal. For the price you cannot go wrong. Thinking of larger tires now.
