Do you know which springs you have up front? If not check the little tag that is attached to them. The last two digits pertain to how stiff they are, 13 being the softest and 19 being the stiffest (55 and 60 in the rear). If you're looking to save money you can make sure that you start with the stiffest OEM springs up front to begin with.
However, overtime all springs will sag, but if you go with a good set in the beginning they will last much longer.
Also do you know if the Budget Boost (BB) you're looking into is 2" all around or if it compensates for the rake up front and evens it out?

If you choose the leveling kit, go with the performance leveling kit "coils". For your situation, you need/want a stiffer spring than the rubi stock coils to handle the extra weight of your winch/bumper combo. The leveling kit "spacers" won't achieve this for you.

I had the TeraFlex leveling boost puck lift on my JKU for 3 weeks. After I changed the bumpers and added a winch The front had dropped lower. I removed it and went with a TeraFlex 2.5" spring lift and now all is well.

I installed a 2'' black diamond spacer lift, and put a bumper and winch on a year later. I lost about half an inch in the front. I went on teraflex website and swapped out the 2" front spacers with their 2.5''. That brought me perfectly back to level.
I thought about changing over to aftermarket coils, but so far I haven't found a reason to.
