Upgrade - Upgrade or swap out?

Currently my 97 xj is running a RE 4.5" kit with add a leafs, with brand new street-lock black rims and new 32/11.5/r15's. Looks like I will be attempting to either upgrade my suspension to something more like a 6.5-8" suspension lift and upgrade to 35/12.5/r15 tires. My dilema is whether to upgrade my current suspension with REs 5.5" brackets and either a 2" spacer or an ACOS and new spring packs in the rear or do I just sell off my used suspension and go with something completely new like a full-traction 6.5 long arm kit?

Any input or suggestions about what I should do? Would it be easy to sell of that suspension and those tires and rims or should I just upgrade what I have and just try to sell the tires? Anyone out there interested in a used suspension system and wheels and tires in southern CA?
