BB kit for 2003 me decide!

I have a 2003 TJ Sport with automatic transmission with 96k miles.

I'm currently running 31x10.5x15 Firestone Destination MT's but would like to go up to 32 or maybe 33" tire next.

Little to no off-roading so I'm not worried about 33's rubbing with just using a BB. I have aftermarket wheels already that have enough backspacing to clear the tires with no issues.

Both of these kits are under $300. I really like the Rubicon Express kit but it does not come with new coils like the Rough Country kit does.

Thoughts on these two kits?

Rubicon Express:
Fabtech, skyjacker, rubicon express, bestop, truck tires, pro comp wheels

Rough Country:
Jeep TJ Suspension Lift

I ran a 2" spacer with the stock shocks for a while.. you might consider that and then get some shocks later if you need them. For 33's you really need 3-4" of lift for them to have enough room and not rub.

My stock shocks need to be replaced so that's why I'm looking to lift it now. I just thought it might be a good idea to replace the springs at the same time.
