Body lift advice?

I want to get a body lift. Pros and cons for a 1.25 lift and a 2" lift?
What do I have to change for those lifts?

I would keep to an inch and would recommend the full poly spacers that replacethe old ones, I am not a fan of pucks.
The major things will be the possibility of brake lines although sometimes theres enough slack and your linkage for the 4 wheel drive shifter

I'd go no higher than 1.25" and actually, I strongly recommend the plain vanilla 1" kit from Performance Accessories. There are a lot of reasons to spend extra $$$ for suspension lifts but not for a body lift where the most basic works as well as some that are just stupid-expensive for those who seem to think if it's more $$$ it must be better.

Is this a better route then the savvy BL jerry? Ive heard a lot of great stuff about there BL. But Ive wonder if it was worth the extra cash?
