Need some opinions on the Master Plan

So ideally, one day I'll be running 33s. The plan to get there (when all the money falls into place) is get the OME 2.5 inch lift kit and run 32s until I can afford a 1in BL and 33s. Do you guys think I'd just be better off holding off on the 32s and getting the BL and OME lift from the get go?

Seeing how I'm pretty new to this, what other things should I factor in financially? A SYE? Steering stabalizer? I'm also open to other lift kits, it's just that I've heard nothing but awesome reviews about Old Man Emu.

I'm on a college budget so I doubt I'll be able to get it all at once. The jeep is also my daily driver and I tend to just go wheelin on the weekends but would prefer to do more than just the "bunny slopes". I have taken it stock and pushed it pretty hard and it's amazing what the little bugger can do. I'm just looking for a little bit more from it and I'd be lying if I didn't say I'd love a more aggressive look.

It's a 4.0L 5 speed btw.
Thanks!

I would suggest only buying tires once. If you want to run 33s step up to a 3.5 lift and install the dreaded transfer case drop spacers (I can't believe I just said that). When you save up enough coin install a SYE and loose the spacers. It would be better then buying tires twice and should put you into a better lift kit too.

Or buy a budget boost and a body lift and throw on the 33s while you use the stock shocks. Upgrade the shocks when you have more $.

I like this idea alot. Never though about this route. Don't things get much more complicated with a 3.5in lift?

I like your plan, don't buy tires twice. Body lifts are cheap just save a little longer.
