Well any BL over an inch or so is usually not a good idea. Me personally, I have a JKS 1.25 BL with a 1" MML. And just for the ease of working on components under your rig I think it's worth it. I recently had to replace my clutch and believe me those two reverse torque bolts at the 11 and 1 O'Clock position on the clutch housing were a lot easier to get to. But if your not going to go big on the tires I do agree, save up for a good SL.
