Budget boost options

Im looking to put a budget boost lift on my 98 4l TJ. I want it big enough to slap on some 33x12.5s, but im not a hardcore offroader so performance isnt a main concern. id prefer not to have to replace the shocks. All pics and ideas are greatly appreciated! Heres a pic of her with the 31s

Being able to clear 33's well incase you decide to flex it at all. That's the exact set up I was running in the pic below.
I would add front bump stops to the kit though, hindsight being 20/20.
I know you are not looking to replace shocks, but you will be unbolting them anyway.

That looks good and seems to give some good flex. Are there any cheaper options out there you know of that will still be descent quality?

If you are just trying to fit the 33's then you can get the budget boost spacers for around 50 bucks, you will have to put rear bumpstop extensions on for prob 20 bucks and a 1" body lift for about 100 bucks.
That's 170 ish.

What do you think the biggest/smallest i should get. Big enough that i will clear 33s, but not too big for it to ride like sh!t and possibly damage something

Go for it. If you need more clearance than throw on a body lift. Typically the minimum suggested lift for 33's is 3" with stock fenders and the max recommended budget boost spacer is 2". Worst part about lifting is that you still have to pay for the tires.
