if you don't have the money right now, then wait. Your jeep is too nice and costly to lift it halfway and then regret doing it.
If you are really set on lifting it. Go with a 3.5 kit at first. Then you can add the BB later if you want. *this is the least expensive route.
Or you can wait and save and get something like the RE 4.5 and then go bigger later.
Keep in mind, the short arm kits are reversible. You can take them off if you don't like them. Long arm kits are permanent. They are welded and parts get cut off. You can't revert back to stock.
