I'm looking for a little more clearance, over obstacles, with minimum expense and simple installation.
What, if any, benefit would I get from the TeraFlex 1.5-2" Budget Boost?
Forgive me, if this is a stupid question. Obviously, I am a novice regarding lifts.

Not stupid at all, the price is right and install isn't bad and it would give you the room for some bigger tires.

canadianrubi,
Thanks.
It sounds as if I'm on the right track for my goal.

I ran this lift before the BDS and it worked well, depending on what size tires you want to run you may want to price a BL and bump stop extensions. Good Luck :D

I'm thinking 33" tires max at some point.
Any thoughts on the Rubicon Express Budget Boost?

Thanks for the info.
I'm leaning toward the 2" RE Budget Boost and the 1" MORE body lift, unless someone advises me otherwise.

Oh it's the Tits :lol: I ran the RE and loved the Doestech shocks, you should have no problem running 33's with that combo but I would advise extending your bump stops so you don't kill your springs.

The RE Budget Boost kit includes 2" rear bump stops. Would that be enough?

Should be ok for the rear, might want to look into something for the front. When I was running the BB I still had 31's so I didn't run into any issues. There were some posts on this a little while ago, but I think the conclusion was that the bump stops need to be extended front and rear to keep the springs happy. Don't forget pics when it's done! :D

Extending the bump-stops prevents premature wear on your springs, but they will still last 2-3 years and stock replacements are cheap.
If you had paid $$$ for lift springs and then were in danger of sagging them I would say to make sure to use the bump-stops. As it is I would say only use the minimum you need to keep the tires off the fenders and if the springs sag get another set off somebody who is putting a full lift on.
