2.5 inch lift or flats

Im in a toss up on a 2.5 inch lift or getting bushwacker flat fenders. If i get the flats im also going to buy new shocks because im running the stock x shocks which suck and 18/60 coils. Since im running 18/60 coils a 2.5 inch lift will only be a 1 inch difference from where im at now. Right now im running 285 TW guard dogs which come out to be 33.3 inches so its almost like a small 315 and i just added a smittybilt XRC bumper up front which is an added 100 lbs. What i dont want to do though is have to buy new driveshafts and such i probably could deal with a track bar if i needed too. Also i dont do any rock crawling or heavy flexing the most i do is light trails/mud in nw PA(never even disconnected ). This is what it looks like right now its pretty close to the fenders.

Also both options are around the same price i would probably be going with a terflex since there 2.5 inch isnt way over 2.5 inches like some others from what ive read

Measure your front coil (see pic)

It really depends on what coil you choose. Not all are rated the same.
