Budget boost or body lift?

I have a 2003 Rubicon with a 2.5" Rancho rock crawler. I am looking to put on some 33x12.5's and need to add a little more lift. Would you recommend a 1.25" body lift or a similar sized budget boost and why? Thanks for any advise!

I'd go with the 1.25" BL...or Jerry Bransford recommends another brand of 1" BL that's just as good and considerably cheaper (can't remember who makes it). The reason I'd add it...you get that extra tire clearance for the 33's, plus you can buy an MML (motor mount lift) and if you have a t-case drop, you should be able to remove it without getting any vibes.

I have the 2 inch OME kit and installed the JKS 1.25 inch body lift along with the 1 inch motor lift. The reasons are explained perfectly from s3nt above.

Performance Accessories is the company. I have their BL and I installed it completely within 45 minutes.....and I'd never installed a BL before that. I'd recommend that BL to anyone who's interested.

Thanks to all. Sounds like the body lift is the way to go.
