2-2.5" Budget Boost Lift
 
Which budget boost lift is going to give me the best bang for my buck? The 3" Full Traction lift went over budget a little:

3" FT lift - $400
Shocks - $150
SYE/CV - $500
Rear Uppers - $200
Rear Track -$150

=$1400

So now I'm thinking about a 2-2.5" budget boost and a 1-2" body lift.

What are the best companies for this? Which is going to be the best bang for my buck?

The only one I've really looked at so far is the Rubicon Express 2" Budget Boost lift, and it comes with:
# RE1334 1.75" Coil Spring Spacers
# RE1385 2" Rear Upper Bumpstops
# RXT2220 2xRE Twin Tube Shocks
# RXT2421 2xRE Twin Tube Shocks

They are all about the same, except for the type of shocks they come with. Hell you can run the stock shocks for a while if you need to. Limited flex of course, but it can be done.

If it was me, I would be very comfortable with buying the RE.

If I bought the pucks on ebay, which shocks should I get? I'd be willing to spend a little extra cash on nice shocks for a soft ride.

Old Man Emu or......
Rubicon Express Monotube or.......
Full Traction Monotube

You won't regret any of these.

in my 2008 RE catalog they say they now have a 2inch spring. When i get home ill get a part number.

I installed a 2 inch coil spacer lift I purchased off EBAY for just under $200. It included rancho shocks and a steering stabilizer. I am running 32 X 11.50 tires and the ride quality is as stock. No degredation at all. I'm very satisfied. I don't believe I could have gotten more "bang for my buck" as you call it.

go with the Old man EMU lift for sure! its a nice ride and the best quality you will get out of any of them for around $500 to $700 oh and its a 2.5 inch lift with shocks and springs!

you will love it! anyone agree?

I totally agree on the shocks. I don't have the OME springs, so I can't compare them to my Full Traction springs......which I LOVE!!!
