there really arent any disadvantages of the budget boost that I can think of.
the advantage is keeping close to stock handling and ride since you'd still be using the stock coils, shocks. And no need to add alot of extra $$$ for stuff like aftermarket trackbars or extended sway bar links. you may want to get front disconnects for the sway bar though or make your own quick disconnects so you can get better flex.
The reason I mentioned the taller motor mounts was because I had also mentioned the body lift. If raising the body then it's nice to raise the motor too so everything like the fan (on the motor) and the shroud (on the tub) still line up. Raising the motor also helps the rear drive line angle to be at less of an extreme angle and will give you a smoother ride without vibrations or binding of the rear driveshafts u-joints. But the taller motor mount isn't required and neither is the body lift for that matter. It's just nice to get a little more clearance for the larger tires with the body lift. And the motor mount lift give more clearance under the oil pan too.
