It reminds me of a Tera lift with ProComp MX-6 shocks. The control arms are ok for mild offroading but aren't flexible enough for really tough uneven trails. The dropped Pitman arm should definitely NOT be installed with that lift, it should be left to be used as a paperweight. Installing it would cause bump steer with that particular configuration. The shocks are actually very good shocks that have 6 different stiffness settings though you'd likely want to run them on the 1 or 2 (softer) settings.

For only $225 it's not a bad deal at all so long as the shocks are in good condition. BE SURE not to install the dropped Pitman arm if you buy it, no matter what anyone tells you.

I have been thinking about doing a BB and some 31's, but I could do this and get 32's, but it seems like its gonaa be more money in the long run replacing things and getting things I wouldn't with the BB. My plan is also to go up to either a 3.5 or a 4.5 RE in about 4 years or maybe a little less.
