M planning on putting a 2.5" lift on my 2015 JK 2 door with 33" tires. It's my DD and on my two weeks off I take it to the cabin and plan on playing in any mud I can find so it sees its fair share of off-road.

I found a teraflex 2.5" budget boost with shocks on quadratec for 550$ free shipping.
So my question is what is the big difference between a budget boost and a standard lift kit?

Thanks

You will be using your factory springs and adding spacers instead of replacing the springs. Some people like the ride better with the TF springs. BTW, I sell Teraflex products. I will shoot you a price via PM for both kits. Also for the kits with shock adapters. This will save you some money until your factory shocks wear out.

PM coming.

Don't do either one!! With those tires and its your DD just get an EVO leveling kit and call it a day. Stance will be improved and you won't lose your stock quality ride. This is a no brainier for a 2 door.

So your saying with 33" tires it's just pointless??
I work two weeks on two weeks off so my two weeks off she should see atleast a weekend jeep meet kind trip in the trails.

The beauty of the TeraFlex BB is that you retain factory ride and get the extra clearance. This is the best option if you are staying with factory bumpers. Use your factory shocks for now with the adapters.

However, if your plan is to get steel bumpers and a winch in the very new future, go right to a kit with new springs. The factory springs are just not heavy enough to carry the extra weight.

So if I've already installed a front and rear XRC bumper then budget boost is out the window and a 2.5" lift with springs is my go to then? I figured that's where I stood, I should have put the bumper situation in the original post

Great choice of lift and it will still drive like a dream and greatly improve your off-road capability. Also it will give you the height you need if one day you would like to jump up to a 35 inch tire.

I'm thinking on this for the lift, what do you think this would be like with the two steel bumpers
That's the one. I've installed many of these. They are a durable, quality product. However I would still buy without shocks and get Rancho 9000 or Bilstiens.

If you are really tight on budget go with the Budget Boost but if you want a coil lift kit the TF 2.5" if probably one of the most lift kits for good reasons. One benefit of the BB is that it provides a precise amount of lift where as the coil lift depends on the weight of your Jeep and it will exceed 2.5" in the front.

The budget boost is awesome for those on a very tight budget or for a non offroad DD Jeep looking for some lift or tire clearance while staying close to stock.

The TF 1.5 and the Rough Country Series II 2.5 are very good and a good value. At 2.5 I recommend caster correction with control arm brackets. Combined that's less than $300 ...

If budget isn't a big concern, or off road is in the mix, go spring lift and don't try to be cheap. The TF combo in the "most popular" thread is hard to beat...
