budget lift kit ???

Im looking for a budget lift kit, my jeep is a DD. All i want is to run 31's. Ive heard some peeps run 31's on stock suspension, If any one has any pics that would be cool. Ive been looking at the Rocky Road Outfitters kit, its only like $120 on Amazon, which is way cheaper than anything ive seen, so im wonderin if its a rip?

I bought the Teraflex 2in budget boost along with longer shocks but haven't had time to install it yet. I've heard good things about the Teraflex kits. It comes with front and rear bumpstop extensions and only cost around $130.

Stock



1.75" Rubicon Express BB lift




I didn't replace shocks all I did was extend the rear bumpstop enough to bolt the bumpstop cup back in
Cost $65

And yes it vibrates like hell!!. So make sure if your going to go any higher then 3 inches (including the tire hight!) that you get a t-case drop kit.. It's only like 30-60 bucks and is super easy to install. And in most cases will solve the vibrating problem.
