Stock springs or lift?

So I'm going for the LCG look mostly because I feel that's its safer, cheaper, and more capable for my terrain, but that's not my question. I want to know if I should just replace my stock coil springs and upgrade my shocks, or buy a cheap lift.

More info! My stock springs are sagging, bad, and If I do a lift I will have to buy cheap springs to compensate for the cost of track bars and drive line issues because of my D44. With stock springs I feel like I could just pop some new ones in, regain some height, and be fine for 35's with highline fenders. Right?

You can screw up a LCG setup same as any other lift. If anything, LCG is harder to do right while maintaining good uptravel and keeping enough clearance to run big enough tires to be called "LCG".

Sorry, I should have been more specific about my terrain. It's mud and sand. Sadly there are no rocks or anything to flex on, ive check. The reason I want LCG is because a tall lift does me no good unless I have bigger tires because my pumpkin will still be the lowest point of my rig, and bigger tires will fix that right? And I don't need a lot of up travel right?

Get H&R springs, about 1 inch of lift without any driveline issues and LCG with metal cloaks or other high line fenders.
