One thing you're not considering is the installation time/cost is the same regardless of the cost of the lift kit. If the cheap one breaks or you don't like it, then you will have to spend time/money again to fix it. Cheap stuff can be expensive.
There is a lot of malls out there with some tough terrain but nothing a 2.5" lift can't handle.
