Another reason is that a 2" BB on stock springs is a better ride than a cheap RC lift that will jar your teeth and has bushings that wear out in a in few years. 2"BB on stock springs is not screwing up anything.
But with all that said, I will agree that in $400-$500 range the Zone 3" kit is awesome for the money. http://zoneoffroad.com/product?ki=21&gr=-1

You should be able to do a 2.25" BB and 1.25 "BL for $200. I would do that long before Rough Country anything.
Pro Comp Tires, Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy Wheels, Yukon Gears, Yukon, Coil Spacers, Budget Boost
JKS B1 Body Lift
The only other two things you "should get" are shocks and front bumpstops.

2" coil spacers, 1.25" BL should be $225ish. No issues here. Have a few extra bucks pick up the motor mount and that should eliminate vibes, but every jeep is different. I had none before the MML, it was more for future projects and avoiding radiator drop brackets and what not.
edit: and you can stay with stock shocks, you'll ~1" of droop though, not noticeable in the real world....

|jalbright4242||Will I even be able to tell a 1 inch lift? sorry im new to this ha|

You can always add the suspension lift after you get more $$$$
|04-02-2013 09:13 AM|
Cheapest value would be a sky jacker 2-2.5" bb with their nitro shocks. Not a great lift but it'll get the job done and for cheap. My friend has this lift and it's decent. Match that with at most a 1.25" bl if you still want the extra inch.
You can always upgrade to better shocks like OME or billstein later.

|jalbright4242||So im looking to spend like 250 max, what is the cheapest best value i can get for my buck?|

|jalbright4242||awesome thanks for the run down and advice!|

Even with a 2" lift I've run into unexpected additional items to make it right. 1" MML, extended bump stops, TC skid drop. Driveline vibrations still occur so now I must get adjustable rear control arms to dial in my pinion angle.
This started as $250 springs & $250 shocks and has turned into over $1,000 after everything is completed.

|ThatWhiteMachine101||The cheapest way to do it is body lift or coil spacers but a good way is get a 2.5" coil spring/shock lift kit from Rough Country. With that you can run 32s with stock fenders and 4.5" of backspacing on your wheels with no Issues. Anything over 3" and you'll really need aftermarket control arms and a slew of other upgrades. It's all personal preference though. My opinion is body lifts look like crap by themselves and spacers cause coil bind which is bad news. Hope this helps!|
