Lifting my rubicon

So i got an 03 rubicon the other week and am thinking of putting a lift on it. I'm new to the jeeps i used to have a mustang and was wondering what would be a good lift to put on it. i've been looking at the rubicon express budget lift which has a 3" spacer with shocks. We just lifted my buddys with a 2" skyjacker kit, but i would like mine to sit higher. does mine have a stock lift cuz they appear almost the same with his lift? and he has 31's. i would like to stay under 500 because i am also getting bigger tires possible 31's or 32's. My jeep already has goodyear wrangler mt/r's 245/75 r16's. I would like some suggestions??? thanks

RE makes a 2" BB. not a 3".

Go for a BB and a 1" BL. that will give you 3" of lift for under $500 even with good shocks.

and if you are keeping the same wheels then a 265/75/16 would be about a 32".

You can also do the Rough Country, 4" suspension lift, for that money. You will have room for 33's and more flex on the trail.
